Description

Peacock, Webster & Biddulph: Every School Should be an Inclusive School.

During 2019/20 The University of Cambridge Primary School in collaboration with The Chartered College of Teaching and UCL, Centre of Inclusive Education will provide affordable training opportunities to promote inclusive SEND practices and improve SEND knowledge. The aim is to, improve confidence and competence when teaching children with additional needs. More children with SEND are attending mainstream school. School budgets are tight or virtually non-existent for professional development. A change is needed: every school should be a ‘special’ school to all those who attend.

This session and subsequent sessions will support all educators regardless of their classroom experience and provide by creating a dialogic space for teachers, teaching assistants and researchers to collaborate.


Dame Alison Peacock: is the Chartered College’s Chief Executive since it was established in 2017. Her previous roles have involved teaching in primary and secondary schools, a Headship and publishing her book, Assessment for Learning without Limits. The Chartered College of Teaching (CCT) are the professional body for the teaching profession. Dame Alison will talk about the supporting role of the CCT to support professionals who wish to work in more effective, informed ways to support children with additional needs.

Rob Webster: Rob Webster: is an Associate Professor at the Centre for Inclusive Education, UCL Institute of Education. His latest publication, ‘Including Children and Young People with Special Needs and Disabilities in Learning and Life.’ How far have we come since the Warnock Enquiry — and where do we go next?, marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark Warnock Enquiry into special education. Rob will talk about Mary Warnock’s work and how her call for collaboration between educators and researchers remains relevant today.

Dr James Biddulph: James is the Head teacher of the University of Cambridge Primary School, the first primary University Training School in the UK. James will talk about the importance of relationships, built on trust within a joyful environment. This we believe is crucial to enable all children to flourish. At UCPS we aim to ensure that all children experience a sense of belonging, are educated and feel a valued member of the school community through the promotion of authentic genuine relationships.

Open to: Teaching assistants, Learning Coaches, SENDcos, Teachers and Senior Leaders.
