The Academies Show London at the ExCeL Centre on April 26th 2017 will launch our brand new SEND Open Theatre, offering presentations, case studies and advice to schools and academies across a wide range of topics within the subject of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).
Whether you’re concerned about the funding you will receive over the coming academic years, or the way that an increased SEND intake will reflect on your Ofsted assessment criteria, there are sessions from leading education and SEND experts throughout the day to offer guidance and experience.

School and high needs funding moving forward
The National Fair Funding formula brought about implications for high needs funding. As such, the School and High Needs Funding Consultation was launched to evaluate the challenges and risks of changing SEND provision funding. Hear what implications this will have for your school.

Audits and Training
Special Educational Needs Joint Initiative for Training (SENJIT)
Send training will be a key component of the new core content for all initial teacher training (ITT). This session will highlight the need to up-skill teachers to ensure they can carry out their responsibilities confidently following reforms.

SEND leadership and inclusion – where are we now?
The SEND Review Guide was created in partnership with over forty outstanding special and mainstream schools, as well as organisations such a Contact A Family, Ofsted, Council for Disabled Children, the Institute of Education and Teaching Schools Council.
The Review Guide is based on the Pupil Premium Review and can be used by all schools to audit their own SEND provision. It is, however, most powerful when used as part of a programme of school to school support.
