2018 Inclusion Forums – Spring and Summer term

“We had Ofsted in June (2017) and got ‘good’ – they loved our SEN practices, which can be attributed to help from you!” – Deputy Head – St Helens

Inclusive Learning CPD mornings and SEND Forum afternoons


 Headline agenda for the 2018 summer term Inclusion Forums

Summer Term 2018 morning CPD Course:

’Meta-cognition and Self-regulation’

How to improve outcomes for your vulnerable pupils, using one of the highest impact approaches to teaching and learning.

The Education Endowment Foundation’s Teaching and Learning Toolkit has consistently held meta-cognition and self-regulation at the top of its list of strategies and initiatives that has the greatest impact on pupil progress. Often described as ‘learning to learn’, it has a strong evidence base and is relatively low-cost to schools. These findings correlate strongly with the teaching methods that have been employed by specialist teachers for many decades and with great success.

Zena Martin will Identify practical, easy to implement strategies and approaches that make the biggest differences to pupil progress – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds or with special educational needs.


Target audience:

  • Teachers
  • Training teachers
  • Teaching assistants
  • SENCOs
  • Inclusion Managers
  • Teaching and Learning Leads

A webpage will be provided to delegates with all slides, handouts and resources to enable participating delegates to easily present the course to colleagues back in school.


Summer Term 2018 afternoon SEND Forum:

The Summer Term afternoon Forum features all the usual ‘SEND updates’ and ‘Next steps in SEND’…plus:  

’The Bercow Report – 10 Years On!’ 

Delivered by Wendy Lee, the author of the ‘Bercow – 10 Years On’ Report’, who will outline its key outcomes then highlight the practical implications for your school for speech, language and communication, following the review publication.

 In 2008, The Right Honourable John Bercow MP published a report that was highly critical of the services and provision for speech language and communication needs. He emphasised the crucial nature of communication, poor identification of children’s needs in speech, language and communication, inadequate joint working between services, insufficient personalisation to children’s needs and the ‘postcode lottery’ of provision across the country.

10 years on, Jean Gross is now chairing a panel of experts to evaluate where we are now and whether progress has been made. The report’s author, Wendy Lee, will present its findings and implications for primary and early years settings.


Plus all the usual features including ‘SEND updates’ and ‘Next steps in SEND’

“I always love the SEND Updates….as I leave with a focus to drive through school”

Our aim is to provide all attending delegates of our Inclusion Forums with the slideshows, handouts and resources required, so that you can deliver the same course back in your own school. Indeed, many delegates have reported successfully doing so. We achieve this by providing delegates with access to hidden web pages that contain all the necessary resources to download.

Our copyright terms are that attending delegates are free to use all the materials provided within their own school only. Please contact us if you would like to share with clusters of schools, teaching school alliances or MATs.

An increasing number of schools and clusters now prefer to invite Zena into their school to deliver courses, staff training, INSET days or a package of support directly with staff……for further details please visit here
