Welcome to the NatSIP Website

This website offers access to a wealth of SI resources, most of which are behind a login wall: you need to be registered on the site and logged in before you can access them.

Also, you can't use (or see) the site search until you have logged in.

We ask you to register not because we are checking up on anyone, but because we need to show to the DfE and other organisations supporting NatSIP that our resources are being used in the SI community.

Registration is free, and open to anyone.  A walkthrough/howto on the registration process is here.

RNIB colleagues are giving advance notice that on 22 May the organisation will be sending a Freedom of Information (FOI) questionnaire about VI services to every local authority in England.

The last FOI was carried out in 2015 and RNIB now need to obtain up to date information on the current situation, and to monitor any changes, so they can continue their work to protect education services for children and young people with VI from local authority cuts. They hope that the information collected will be valuable and useful.

The questionnaire for each LA will be sent to the Information Access Officer, who should then pass it to the VI manager to complete. It is really important that a completed questionnaire is returned from all 152 LAs so that a State of the Nation report can be published. The previous, 2015 report, can be downloaded from: https://www.rnib.org.uk/knowledge-and-research-hub-research-reports-education-research/vi-service-provision-2015
