Webinar duration: 51 minutes (approx.)
This nasen (National Association for Special Educational Needs) webinar will provide school leaders, subject leads, curriculum leads and all teaching staff with practical advice and guidance on developing and embedding effective teaching practice for children with SEND.
The SEND Code of Practice 2015 places a statutory requirement on schools to provide effective intervention for pupils with an identified SEND. As the number of SEND diagnoses increases year on year, it’s not surprising that teaching staff might feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities.
Current approaches focusing on the specific needs of each pupil are undoubtedly onerous, but evidence suggests that they might not even be the most effective in bringing about lasting and sustainable improvement in educational outcomes.
In this webinar, Dr Jamie Galpin, Education Officer and lead on CPDL at nasen with 18 years’ experience in SEND, identifies the universal needs of pupils diagnosed with SEND and shows how universal support can be built into everyday teaching practices, increasing engagement and reducing the need for additional support.
