SEND Conference 2018

  • Cutting-edge interventions that have a real impact upon the lives of SEND pupils

  • Person-centred strategies and interventions

  • Updates on best practice from the latest strands of SEN reform

  • Evidence progress to earn an Outstanding grade

As we begin to see the impact of the strands of SEN reform, it is becoming clearer which interventions are working.


It is time to share ideas and make sure that we focus on making all interventions person-centred.


There is no such thing as a ‘standard’ pupil with SEN, so it is vital to make sure that interventions match children.


Discover interventions that will make sure that your SEN provision is as effective as possible. Learn how to demonstrate progress for Ofsted to earn that Outstanding judgement.


Key highlights:

  • Analysis of Ofsted’s Outstanding requirements from Ofsted’s former national SEN lead.
  • Consider the strands of SEN reform and how successful they have been.
  • How to effectively evidence interventions.
  • Important considerations for designing interventions.
  • The importance of collaborative care and collaborative responsibility in SEN interventions.
  • Develop skills of all stakeholders, to ensure excellent SEN provision.
