Friday opening keynote panel debate

Friday 8 January 2021, 9.30am - 10.30am

The SEND Review: real progress or more of the same?

Five years on from reforms introduced to better support children and young people with SEND, we take a look at the government’s review into support for children with SEND, what’s working well, what’s not working so well, and discuss next steps for improving outcomes for children and young people. The opening address will be given by the Council for Disabled Children’s Dame Christine Lenehan, with voices from the National Association of Headteachers and the Council for Disabled Children’s young people’s group FLARE.

The debate is free to attend, just register your interest when you register your free place for the Tes SEN Show.
