Inclusion Essentials


To St Helens SEND Essentials delegates

Summer Term 2020

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the summer term Inclusion Forum, with online interactive sessions beginning on Thursday 28th May, extending through to September. As with the spring forum, there will also be a recorded version that will be embedded into the hidden webpage for anyone preferring to watch it at a time to suit themselves, or those sharing it with colleagues in school to extend the impact of this CPD.

The alternative interactive online sessions will be presented via Microsoft Teams. Do not worry if you are not signed up to Teams, as we will invite you as a guest prior to the session, plus a recorded version will also be available on the ‘hidden-webpage’ afterwards.

For those of you already booked on to the sessions, you should have received an email requesting which session you would like to attend. The form can be accessed here

If you are not booked on but would like to attend…please contact us at [email protected]

A reminder of the agenda detail and dates of the interactive online sessions follows:
