Our recent SEN Teach Meet event was a huge success, bringing together over 70 educational professionals. The event aimed to provide valuable experience for anyone working with children with special educational needs. It provided an opportunity to learn new skills, exchange ideas, and build networks with other professionals in the field.
The event incorporated a range of workshops, which facilitated open dialogue and the sharing of ideas. Our Sensory Integration Lead, Kate Clipston delivered ‘Sensory Integration’, a dedicated session delivery guidance on the identification of sensory processing needs and how to help children and young people who present with them.
Kate Thomas, one of our Assistant Headteachers delivered ‘Total Communication Approach’. A workshop to promote communication aids and support systems, which will enable students in various settings to have an accessible and appropriate ‘voice’.
One of our Assistant Headteachers, Leanne Dickson, delivered ‘Supporting Autism in the Classroom’, a session aimed to develop knowledge, understanding and good practice that can be used with children and young people of all abilities.
Our ‘THRIVE & Positive Behaviour’ workshop was delivered by Carl Foster, our Behaviour and Attitude Lead. The session promoted the benefits of using a positive relational approach when managing crisis and non-crisis discharge behaviours in children and young people.
The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, with many citing the opportunity to learn from peers and share best practices as the highlight of the day. Overall, our SEN Teach Meet event was a resounding success which we believe provided an invaluable platform for professionals in the field to connect and learn from each other.
