An exciting additional SEND event introduced in response to COVID-19.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to be bringing you this additional SEND Seminar in February 2021. With our educationally renowned keynotes speakers originally booked for the 2020 SEND conference, we are sure this half day seminar will provide you with uplifting and expert insights.
Rona Tutt is an inspirational school leader and advocate for SEND, and her well respected writing and speaking will set the tone for the day.
We also have Fintan O'Regan delivering relevant, interesting and challenging viewpoints of SEND. His work has helped to provide clarity, empathy and understanding of our most vulnerable learners.

Human beings tend to dislike the idea of uncertainty. It is full of the unknown and the unpredictable, which easily makes us anxious. Ironically, excitement contains all the same qualities, but just the term ‘excitement’ creates a very different expectation.
In this event with Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, we will look at the differences between uncertainty and excitement, thinking especially about how they shape children’s behaviour. Some children (and adults too) can cope with uncertainty better than others. What explains that difference, and how can that knowledge be applied in the classroom? Dr Zeedyk will use her analogy of Sabre Tooth Tigers to highlight the biological underpinnings of uncertainty, which will serve as a good basis for creating practical ideas for how teachers can comfort children’s anxieties about uncertainties and even, turn them into excitement!
Of course, change always starts with the adults. It promises to be a morning of insight and ideas!

This conference will explore relational approaches that seek to meet the needs of all our learners, including children at risk.
A key Ofsted question is ‘Are your children able to learn?
Learning behaviours and wellbeing are intrinsically linked and the current Ofsted framework puts an increased focus on pupil well-being, behaviour and attitudes.
“Students who are anxious, angry or depressed don’t learn; people who are in these states do not take in information efficiently or deal with it well” – Daniel Goleman
This conference will explore relational approaches that seek to meet the needs of all our learners, including children at risk. Keynote speakers and workshop leaders will help you develop universal provision within your setting that will benefit key individuals and all other children through:
- Developing and maintaining threads of connection
- Establishing classroom steadiness through co-regulation
- Promoting a sense of calm in our learning environments
