NAHT SEND Conference 2015

Thursday, 12th, March, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - Friday, 13th, March, 2015 @ 2:30 pm

Axcis is very pleased to act as gold sponsors of the NAHT SEND Conference 2015 better known as the NAHT special schools and alternative provisions annual conference 2015 for the second consecutive year (2014 & 2015).




Under the theme leading the changes: engaging learners, the NAHT SEND 2015 conference will also incorporate the annual conference of the “National Forum for Neuroscience in Education” and will therefore be of professional interest for school leaders and SENCOs from all schools and academies, mainstream, special, independent, residential, PRUs and alternative providers.


There will be a number of nationally and internationally renowned and inspirational keynote speakers at the NAHT SEND conference including: 

  • Professor Barry Carpenter OBE
  • Professor Francesca Happé
  • Dr Rona Tutt OBE
  • Professor Amanda Kirby
  • Russell Hobby
  • Dr Paul Hutchins AM
  • Dean Beadle

You will be able to choose two seminar sessions that have been designed to inspire, stimulate and empower those working in special schools, specialist and alternative provision with the aim of sharing current educational thinking, advice and support along with examples of effective good practice.

You can expect topics like:

  1. What is developmental co-ordination disorder/dyspraxia?
  2. Ofsted: measuring the progress of pupils operating below national expectations
  3. Evidence-based practice – improving learning outcomes for SEND pupils by engaging attention and self-control with targeted physical activities
  4. Building a communication-friendly school
  5. Social emotional mental health: no two children are the same
  6. Mental health is now your business. So where do you begin?
  7. The new SEND code of practice – lessons learned in the first six months of implementation
  8. Assessment of SEN pupils

This conference is very popular on the SEND calendar so places fill up fast. Be sure to book in advance to secure a place.
