The SEND Framework: Compliance & Best Practice 2015

Thursday 26 Nov 2015
Manage the transition to EHCPs, successfully engage parents and meet your new responsibilities under the Code

Why is this conference relevant?

As we head into the second year of implementation of the SEND Code of Practice, a number of challenges have begun to surface for schools.

  • Is your school successfully managing the transition from statements to Education, Health and Care Plans?

  • Are you truly working in partnership with parents and young people and effectively meeting your duties for co-production?

  • Do you know how SEN is now funded and managing your budget effectively?

Attend this timely event, 14 months into the new framework, to gain vital legal counsel on what you must and should be doing to improve outcomes for children and young people, and take away vital practical input on how you can be sure to meet these obligations.

This is the foremost event for SENCOs and school leaders to gain both essential legal and vital practical perspectives.


What can I expect?

  • Transition to EHCPs: Attend a best practice panel discussion on how to manage transition effectively
  • SEN Funding: Understand how SEN is now funded and what your students are legally entitled to
  • Lawyers Q&A: Put your questions to a panel of legal experts and have your specific questions answered
