Why is this conference relevant?

As it stands, the SEN Green Paper stresses the importance of more thorough identification processes for SEND pupils along with the need for schools to implement quicker and more streamlined processes when it comes to administering assessments to children with multiple and complex needs. The Government response to the formal consultation of the Green Paper is imminent and 20 pathfinders are already in place nationwide.

With substantial changes occurring within SEN provision, are you aware of your new responsibilities?

 What can I expect?

The SEN Green Paper & Achievement for All conference is a unique, not to be missed opportunity to understand the latest developments in the Green Paper and what these mean for your role as SENCO.

  • Early Identification & Assessment: identify problems as they emerge through a robust system of early checks for pupils and implement reformed assessment processes for children with special educational needs
  • Greater Parental Control: harness the involvement of parents/carers in their child’s education to encourage and support the highest aspirations
  • Learning & Achieving: ensure progress is made by all SEN pupils in preparation for sharper accountability measures
  • Greater Collaboration: utilise the power of partnership between schools and local services to improve consistency and flexibility
