The National Association of Independent Schools & Non-Maintained Special Schools (NASS) is a membership organisation working with and for special schools in the independent, voluntary and private sectors within the UK. NASS is proud of its role in improving opportunities and standards for special schools outside of Local Authority control.
 
NASS represents its members to central and local government and key external stakeholders such as Ofsted. They have been represented on key working groups such as Special Academies and Children’s Homes Quality Standards. They are also members of the Special Educational Consortium and the National SEND Forum.
 
Axcis are proud to sponsor the NASS Annual Conference and have been doing so for a number of years now. We also support many campaigns and initiatives run by this organisation. We believe that children with SEND deserve to have improved opportunities and standards and support NASS every step of the way in their mission to achieve this.
