This event is for SENCos who are new to role. It aims to develop an understanding of both the strategic and operational aspects of this unique role in school.
This event will be useful for SENCos who have yet to register for the National SENCo Award. It will also complement training for those who are undertaking it already.
The national focus on mathematics over the past few years has been Teaching for Mastery and we think this is a good time to reflect on this work and support schools to embed their practice and continue to refine and develop practice.
This day will focus on leadership and management, supporting the next phase of development and is a rerun of the 2020/21 event.

This course will help schools to explore the concept of courageous advocacy and what that might mean in their unique context. It is important to move beyond simple solutions, like fundraising, to ask questions about why underlying injustices keep people poor and what can be done about it. We need to develop an understanding of the structural causes of poverty, looking at the complexities that cause injustice in order to tackle root causes,rather than simply soothing symptoms alone. Courageous advocacy can take a number of forms, and we will be exploring examples of the following:
- awareness raising
- community influencing
- lifestyle changes
- consumer power
- engaging with decision-makers.
In an ever increasing online world - the importance of keeping ourselves, our schools and our children and young people safe online has never been more important.
Join us for this session - with input from Devon and Cornwall Police Digital Capabilities Unit - and gain information and strategies to ensure safety and security online.
