Sarah will begin by outlining some of the current barriers to provision for SEND pupils and the nature of these (for example, geographical, funding issues etc). She will then highlight the importance of suitable provision, both in terms of educational attainment and to ensure emotional development and wellbeing. She will draw on her experience both on the ground, and as the leader of a MAT, to discuss how to widen access to suitable SEND provision, and then will be more than happy to answer questions.
Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
