Event description
Join the second IncludEd conference for the CPD, conversations, connections which could change your career in teaching!

About this Event

IncludEd South asks the hardest questions in the profession:

  • Why do less than 5% of excluded pupils pass English and maths GCSE?
  • Do teachers really play a role in cutting knife crime?
  • Would social mobility be better, if schools were shaped around mental health?

We want answers. Do you?

On Saturday 2nd November The Difference hosts a new kind of conference at Thomas Tallis School (Greenwich, London).

We bring together expert practitioners, bright minds and those willing to think differently. Together, we convene the CPD, conversations and connections which could change your practice - or even your career.

Join us.

Hear from inclusive mainstream heads and exceptional AP schools; discuss the latest policy and research with the likes of Ofsted and Education Policy Institute; and learn from different approaches in classroom pedagogy, implementing school policy and local initiatives like the “Glasgow Model” to reducing youth violence.

*New speakers announced - see below*

This year's line up includes:

  • Practice: Can London schools learn from Glasgow in reducing youth violence?

Maureen McKenna, architect of the Glasgow Model to address Serious Youth Violence answers the question, in conversation with TES Editor Ed Dorrell.

  • Keynote: students' stories of ex/inclusion

As with last year's conference, the day opens with a keynote from young people, speaking about their experience in schools and the teachers who have shaped their lives.

  • Debate: can school leaders stop vulnerable learners being educated in unsafe settings?

Guardian journalist Laura McInerney in discussion with Ofsted's National Director Sean Harford who shares details of their crackdown on illegal schools, Education Policy Institute's Director Jo Hutchinson who discusses their recent research on "unexplained pupil moves", Head of Hawkswood Primary PRU Marie Gentles and former Regional Schools Commissioner, now CEO of Unity multi academy trust, Tim Coulson.

  • Research: teacher-pupil relationships and mental health

Tamsin Ford, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry shares her research and its implications for teachers and leaders.

  • Teaching: to be trauma-aware

Shaun Brown leads a session for teachers on trauma and "big I inclusion", back by popular demand from last year's conference

  • Behaviour systems: learning from other services

Mohamed Abdallah shares the design of inclusion as Dunraven School, recently featured in the Evening Standard. He explains how his close working with child and adolescent mental health services and social services have shaped work in the school.

  • Powerful pedagogy: can it prevent exclusion?

Middle leaders demonstrate how the best research in literacy is cutting behaviour challenges in their schools.

  • Curriculum for the disengaged: arts, employment... boxing?

Hear from the best schools for excluded pupils on what their curriculum looks like in order to get learners back on track. From routes to employment at WAC Arts College to the discipline of a boxing gym at The Boxing Academy.

  • Conversation: committing your career to the children who need you most

In conversation with leaders at different stages of their careers, about what drives them and the defining moments of their leadership journeys, inspired by Iesha Small's book The Unexpected Leader.
