Event summary - why is this conference relevant?

The new system for SEN Funding is causing widespread confusion within schools. Are you confident you know the latest SEN funding formula? Are you accurately tracking the spend? Can you evidence and report high-impact use to relevant bodies?

This unique half-day briefing will equip you with the latest funding updates as well as practical strategies to ensure the most effective use of your SEN budget.
