SEND in the mainstream






SEND in the mainstream

The ‘SEND in the Mainstream’ training is structured around the EEF ‘SEND in the Mainstream’ guidance and the 5 recommendations set out within it to support primary and secondary schools seeking to improve their provision for pupils with SEND.


The focus of the training is on improving the quality of teaching and learning in mainstream classrooms and ensuring pupils are full members of the school community who have rich and positive experiences. We recognise the complexities around SEND however the aim is to give an overview of some key ‘best bets’ for improving SEND provision. During the training various SEND audit tools, including those from Whole School SEND, will be discussed and used as gap tasks to support delegates to (part) audit their SEND provision.


The training includes practical tasks including case studies, exploration of research and evidence informed practice. There will be opportunities for discussion and reflection between delegates. Delegates will also be encouraged to share best practice from their own settings in a way to recognise and celebrate much of the good work that is already in practice
