The programme begins with an introductory twilight led by an experienced SEND Specialist Leader in Education (SLE), at which participants will explore the challenges they are currently facing in their roles. Each SEND Leader will decide on a personal area of focus and use this focus to decide on a number of possible visits to special schools, mainstream schools with specialist units, and Outstanding schools with strong SEND provision.

SEND Leaders then attend two of the six school visits available at which they will observe classroom practice and have the opportunity to discuss systems and procedures with the school SENDCo. These visits will be led by the SEND SLE, who will host structured discussions at the end of each half day visit to draw out learning.

Participants will then attend a review day led by the SEND SLE at which they will share learning from their visits and decide on next steps for their own schools, creating an action plan for each participating school.

Session One: Wednesday 1 April 2020, 4:00pm - 5:30pm:

  • What current challenges do you face in your setting?
  • What might the focus for your school visits be?
  • Which schools do you plan to visit?

Participants visit at least two other school settings.

Session Two: Monday 8 June, 1:30pm - 4:00pm:

  • Reviewing the school visits – what was our learning?
  • What will our next steps be as a school?
