Book your place on ‘Practical Strategies for SEND Students in a Mainstream Classroom’ here


The Practical Strategies for SEND students in a Mainstream Classroom CPD programme focuses on sharing and reflecting upon impactful practical strategies that can be delivered through quality-first teaching. This approach is supported by the government’s response to the Green Paper (2022), Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and Alternative Provision Support Plan: Right Support, Right Place, Right Time (2023) that states that “All staff should be upskilled to support children with additional needs before feeling that they need to refer on to get more specialist support.” Inclusive Practices within a Mainstream Classroom will also explore autism and how teaching can be adapted to meet the needs of these learners.

  • A variety of practical, personalised strategies for pupils with SEND
  • How to provide an equality of access to the curriculum
  • Creating exceptional, inclusive classroom environments
  • How to effectively deploy teaching assistants
  • Role of SENDCO and graduated response
  • How to adapt practice whilst managing workload
  • Communication in the classroom
  • Supporting SEND students to manage their own behaviour

This CPD programme will be delivered over two afternoon sessions
