Why attend?

To make a real difference to some of our most vulnerable pupils, a whole-school approach to SEND needs to be adopted so that
provision is ‘built-in, not bolt-on’. This session will consider the role of every leader in ensuring effective provision and impact.

What are the aims of the day?

  • To consider why a whole-school approach to SEND is important
  • To support schools to ensure every leader is a leader of SEND
  • To develop effective ways of monitoring and evaluating the impact of SEND provision across the school
  • To consider practical ways of leaders working together to develop a strategic approach to SEND.

What will the day cover?

  • The roles and responsibilities of the SENCO and other leaders
  • The use of key strategic tools for SEND
  • The Education Inspection Framework and SEND
  • Developing an inclusive curriculum 
  • A focus on inclusive High Quality Teaching  
  • Practical ways to monitor and evaluate SEND provision and outcomes


Who should attend?  

The session is aimed at SENCOs and other senior or middle leaders in the school who have a responsibility for teaching and
learning, curriculum or provision. Ideally, the SENCO will attend with another school leader to maximise impact.
