Why is this conference relevant?
The SEND code of practice states that to enable students with SEND to achieve their ambitions ‘local education, health and social care services should work together to ensure they get the right support’*. However, engaging all agencies in the EHCP is proving challenging for schools.
Our Efficient Partnership Working to Improve SEND Outcomes conference will provide you with fresh strategies and best practice to enable you to work effectively with all agencies and professionals to support improved outcomes for children and young people.
*Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years, Department of Education, January 2016
