Teachers are being invited to a special conference which will focus on helping pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The event, titled ‘SEND is everybody’s business’ is being held by The Specialist Hub Network and the SEN and Inclusion Services of Peterborough City Council and takes place at the Deafblind UK Conference Centre in Cygnet Road, Peterborough, on Thursday, 28 February, from 9am to 4pm.

The conference is aimed at equipping and empowering class teachers with understanding, skills and strategies to help support a range of learners with special educational needs and disabilities.

Lynne Ayres, Peterborough City Council's cabinet member for education, said: “The conference will feature a number of speakers, practical workshops focused on what to do in the classroom as well as a chance for networking.

“This is a great opportunity for teachers to gain understanding, resources and make new contacts for ongoing support.”

Keynote speakers will include Lauren Steadman, a World and European Paralympic champion, Charlie Fogarty a young man who suffered a brain injury in a car accident and Mary Rayner of Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) who will speak on the topic of ‘Quality first teaching: differentiation not simplification’.
