TKAT hosts virtual Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Conference.Posted on 27th January 2021
Over fifty TKAT colleagues joined a virtual Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Conference.
Delegates explored what ‘Becoming a Trauma Aware School’ means, how to support pupils and the impact trauma can have on school communities.
TKAT's Shenstone School shared their bespoke assessment system for pupils working below the National Curriculum and the school’s journey to create their own unique holistic assessment system across 6 areas of learning.
The conference looked at how key data and strategic tools can be used to develop effective understanding and leadership of SEND. Finally, delegates explored how working memory affects everybody, with a particular focus on pupils with SEND.
Feedback from delegates was very positive:
"Thank you for a really informative and engaging conference. It was a real pleasure to refocus attention on the varying challenges we face in SEN that are non -Covid!. All aspects were relevant and thought provoking". (Delegate from Royal Park Academy)
"Thank you for organising today's conference, I thought it was really useful. It was great to revisit the Whole School SEND work.The session on working memory was really practical and helpful - well explained with easy strategies to share with staff." (Delegate from The Academy, Selsey).
Well done to all involved.
