Empty promises: the crisis in supporting children with SEND - 7 December 

Our recent survey of school leaders on supporting children with SEND provided a powerful testimony of an education system struggling to meet the needs of its most vulnerable pupils.

In response, we're working together with parents and school leaders to press the government on the urgent need for more high needs funding.

We want to hear about the reality of supporting children with SEND in the face of the continuing funding crisis. You will also get the chance to hear from our speakers who will motivate, stimulate and move you.

  • Carrie Grant - TV personality, voice coach and parent of children with SEND
  • Sabrina Hobbs - principal, Severndale Specialist Academy
  • Amanda Elliot - Hackney SEND Parents' Group
  • Rob Kelsall - NAHT national secretary (campaigns and organising)
  • Vic Goddard - head of Passmores academy, the school featured in the Channel 4 series Educating Essex. 

This event will take place from 9.30am to 1pm at Aston Wood Golf Club, Blake Street, Little Aston, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B74 4EU.
