Salford Professional Development is proud to present our sixth Special Educational Needs and Disability Conference. Bringing together sector leaders, professionals and parents to reflect on a system that left children and young people feeling ‘forgotten, left-behind and overlooked’ during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Having been disproportionately affected by issues arising from protracted school closures – disrupted teaching and EHCP delivery, lack of support during the transition and a disregard for social, emotional, and mental wellbeing: what measures need to be taken to tackle educational inequality in SEND?
In the National SENCO Workforce Survey 2020, 73% of SENCO’s surveyed reported issues with the virtual delivery of SEN support, with a further 8 out of 10 finding it difficult to provide learning support online.
How can collaborative working be utilised to not only improve outcomes for pupils with SEND but also in supporting SENCOs, Schools and Local Authorities in delivering provisions?
Join us to discuss best practices, the dynamic challenges in SEND and plans beyond the pandemic.
