Realising the Creativity of SEND Pupils


Tom Underwood, a lead teacher in A New Direction’s special school network will inspire teachers (mainstream, special, primary and secondary) with relevant and easy to replicate practical activities that engage all learners with creativity and culture. Tom will share an example of how he used a simple tool, based on Howard Gardner’s 8 way thinking, to enable his students to deliver the Tate Modern’s first ever non-verbal 10 minute talk. Tom will share the impact that this experience had on his students, their families and his own practice.

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.
