All in This Together: Making SEND Everybody's Business


Supporting schools and colleagues after the COVID-19 pandemic - we are thrilled to be able to bring you the ‘All in This Together Conference: Making SEND Everybody's Business.’

The conference is relevant for any stakeholders with responsibility for developing whole school SEND so that the challenge of leading SEND in our schools is more widely understood and shared.

This year, we are excited to welcome keynote speakers, who will provide uplifting and expert insights into SEND from different stakeholder perspectives, as well as and a range of workshops, all of which will enable you to go back to school feeling refreshed, updated and positive. Workshops will focus on the Graduated Response Toolkit, oral storytelling and case studies of joint working.

Our first Keynote speaker is Robert White. Many colleagues will recall Robert from being runner up in 2018’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. However, Robert also describes himself as being ‘as strange as I was bad’ whilst growing up. Robert has lived his life with a variety of SEND, including Autism and Dyslexia and will be sharing his stories of childhood and school. We will also welcome Brian Walton, Headteacher of Brookside Academy in Somerset. Brian will talk about the journey of his school in embedding SEND across the school culture. We are thrilled to welcome both speakers and look forward to their addition to our annual SEND Conference.
