Fighting for Deep Social Justice

It is not an exaggeration to say that our current system of education is at breaking point.

SSAT has decided to stand up and speak out, and to fight to put social justice at the heart of the education system.


Our membership networks and range of CPD programmes for teachers offer practical schools-led advice and innovative, long term strategies.
