SEND Review Conference

Target role: All Schools


08 November 2018 8am - 2pm


Join us on 8th November at the Village Hotel for the SEND Review Conference.

This SSIF-bid funded project involves 20 Portsmouth schools - 18 primary, 2 secondary. The project uses regional and national SEND specialists to support schools in their development of SEND strategy, practice and implementation.  Our conference will be a celebration of our work and a dissemination of our key successes and outcomes across all schools in the project.

Key areas covered will include:

  • Establishing a shared, whole school vision and responsibility for pupils with SEND.
  • SENCOs and leaders of SEND working strategically alongside class teachers to review and improve their teaching for learners with SEND.
  • Consistent approaches to provision mapping so that the impact and cost-effectiveness of interventions can be rigorously evaluated.
  • Approaches to assessment, particularly in the areas of SEMH.
  • Sharing best practice in the deployment and development of teaching assistants to ensure that this resource is used efficiently and has maximum impact.
  • Parental confidence in SEND provision. Building opportunities to for parents and carers to contribute to shaping the quality of support.
  • Flexible approaches to the curriculum at KS4
  • Knowledge of SEND budget including high needs and notional

We will also welcome keynote speakers

The project has been positively reviewed by participant schools:

  • ‘We saw an increase in parental engagement at parent’s evening for Year 8 & 9 SEN students following advice from our coach which was very positive.’
  • ‘Staff are more able to personalise the teaching in the moment as they are so conversant with each child’s next step in reading writing and maths.’
  • ‘It is always so helpful to see how other people tackle the same challenges.  It is good to see that we are already doing so many of the same things as others.’
