In the words of Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, “When we improve the quality of inclusion, we improve education for all.”

The aspirational agenda is clear – all schools need to become fully inclusive. But knowing how to put this into practice can be challenging for schools.

This targeted and practical two day event will ensure that attendees know how to meet the latest requirements, develop a whole school approach and support all needs.

Day one will focus on how to provide a fully inclusive culture in school, including such topics as:
• What does a whole school approach to inclusion look like?
• How to provide a curriculum that meets needs and supports early intervention
• Strategies to support staff to deliver high-quality, differentiated teaching
• Learn how to move away from labels and focus on the strengths and challenges
• How to work positively in partnership with parents.

Day two will focus on supporting wellbeing and mental health, including such topics as:
• Utilising positive psychology and positive education in the school environment
• Understanding the needs of third culture children and the expat child
• Proven methods to respond to students with anxiety or depression
• Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of staff
• Learn how to build resilience and self-esteem amongst children and young people.

Alongside the conference, there will be a comprehensive programme of free-to-attend seminars for teachers and LSAs focusing on meeting different needs in the classroom. 

This event is a unique opportunity to bring together leaders from across the region for a high-impact, practical and thought-provoking event that addresses the key shift to a more inclusive and positive environment in schools.
