Create a whole-school approach to SEND education that will ensure provision for SEND students and improve attainment outcomes


Why is this conference relevant?

Children in special needs education face £1.6bn cash shortfall - The Guardian, 2018

Children with special educational needs and disabilities are being continually let down by their local authorities due to insufficient funding. As more SEND pupils move into mainstream education, teachers are under more pressure than ever to integrate and accommodate pupils with complex needs. 

This conference will allow delegates the chance to take away practical strategies to help manage the increasing pressure on SEN departments, giving staff confidence in effective teaching to SEND pupils.
