SEN conference

Special Events

This week we hosted our second SEN conference at Bruern Abbey Senior School and were once again delighted to have responses from 80 delegates representing over 60 different schools. We welcomed Professor John Stein back to the fold and he spoke on 'Does developmental dyslexia exist?' . He certainly does have a big fan club at our conferences. For her first time speaking at the SEN conference we had the pleasure of listening to Elizabeth Cordle who spoke on ‘The importance of motor programmes to improve educational outcomes in children.’ Elizabeth is the founder of the Corefulness nursery and primary school programmes supporting children with special educational needs and breaking down barriers to learning for all children, this is something we have introduced at Bruern Abbey Prep School. Last to mention, but certainly not least, our very own John Floyd took to the stage to share his insights and 'A look into the interrelationships between EDI policy, SEND needs and Ed Psych reports'. The day was a huge success and we look forward to hosting the next one in October 2024.
