4.45 - 5.30 Keynote speaker: Tom Bennett

5.30-6.00 Workshop 3/4 Working with children with different needs and circumstances

6.00-6.30 Networking and a second chance to visit provider stands

This free event is open to any member of staff and governors from a Norwich Opportunity Area school that has signed up to the Norwich Inclusion Charter or is considering doing so.

The Norwich Inclusion Charter is a Norwich Opportunity Area programme to support schools in their work with children at risk of exclusion. This is a free twilight event offering a range of workshops on inclusive approaches and pedagogy, a key note speech by Tom Bennett on his report to Government about behaviour in schools and his funded CPD offer for schools in the Norwich Opportunity Area, as well as a large number of stands from local organisations and charities that can support school inclusion.

This event provides a great opportunity for inclusion champions and school leaders to meet local providers and discuss the kind of programmes that can help their school with inclusion, to inform their planning for collective school commissioning through the Opportunity Area fund from September 2018.

Workshop1 (4.15pm -4.45pm)

‘Working with Children with different needs and circumstances’: Norfolk Young Carers’Forum

Often children can go through school without being identified as a young carer. Their circumstances can mean that attendance and behaviour is erratic, and when the reasons are undisclosed, schools will often use their sanctions system where this is unlikely to be the best approach. The NYCF will share how to identify young carers in your school, their needs and circumstances, best approaches, and the support available to Norwich schools.

Workshop 2 (4.15pm -4.45pm)

Workshop on NOA commissioning: Jacqueline Bircham

Jacqueline will explain theprocess of commissioning support for inclusion work through the Norwich Inclusion Charter school groups over the next two years, as well as opportunities for schools to bid for funds through the Norwich Evidence-based Practice Fund on two of our key themes –supporting successful transitions and developing inclusive approaches to pedagogy.

Tom Bennett Keynote

(4.45pm –5.30pm)

Independent behaviour advisor to the UK Department for Education, and founder of researchED talking about the Government report and OA programme offer

Running a School: how to create a behaviour culture for the classroom and the whole school.

In this session Tom will discuss the findings of his 2017 report for the DfE ‘Creating aCulture’, a summary of what the best UK schools do to create a culture where all students could flourish, be civil to one another, and learn. This then leads into hisbehaviour training, which is offered to eligible schools in the Norwich region and beyond. Leadership courses and whole school classroom teacher training is available, distilling the best of what we know about what works for great behaviour.

Workshop 3

(5.30pm –6pm)

‘What the Evidence Says’Niki Kaiser

Niki will summarise some of the research evidence surrounding inclusion, from behaviour approachesto inclusive pedagogy, focusing on those pupils who are most at risk of exclusion. She will draw on sources such as the recent report commissioned by the Nuffield foundation into School-based interventions for reducing disciplinary school exclusion and the research from the Institute of Education on mixed-attainment grouping vs setting.

Workshop 4

(5.30pm –6pm)

‘Life after Exclusion’: Stories from children on the other sideof PEX

Hear from children who have experienced exclusion as we ask them to reflect on what their schools could have done to keep them, to help them re-engage with education, and what other support outside of school might have made the difference. We’ll also ask how they are getting on in their new settings and their hopes for the future.
