Following the Independent Schools SEND Conference that took place in April 2022, this follow-up one day online training has been developed with expert SEND teacher, Amanda Ross-Scott, to help teachers, leaders and SENCOs from across the Independent Schools sector take the next step in delivering quality provision, and meeting the needs of every child and young person with SEND.

This engaging training course will involve:
• 3 interactive workshops
• 2 focused discussion sessions
• 1 quick and easy top tips session
• Endless opportunities to connect with and learn from peers, through the day and beyond.

Learning objectives include:
• Evaluate your school’s approach to SEND provision, and strategise how to make improvements
• Review the key responsibilities of all school staff in ensuring quality SEND provision and adequate support for every learner
• Learn how to make your curriculum more inclusive, and embed High Quality Teaching across your school
• Examine the needs of learners with SEND in wider elements of school life including on school trips, extra-curricular activities and break and tutor times
• Discuss with peers and learn about effective practice in other settings, and work together to overcome your challenges in delivering a quality learning experience for children with SEND.

According to the Independent School Council’s (ISC) 2021 Census, 90,298 pupils were recorded as having SEND, compared to 75,012 in 2020. While 17% of all ISC pupils now require SEND support, 5.3% also have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) – and the importance of meeting the needs required as part of these plans has only heightened in light of the pandemic and its impact on learning and development opportunities.

With Ofsted reporting that many families have been waiting as long as two years to obtain support for their children’s learning needs, now more than ever schools must demonstrate their ability and pro-activeness in ensuring tailored approaches to the needs of every child.

All independent school staff, including senior leaders, teachers, and special and additional learning needs coordinators, have a responsibility to meet the needs of children and young people in their care, and at this interactive online training you will gain practical advice and guidance to effectively improve support for learners with SEND in your school.
