A jointly funded and supported event by In Control and NDTi
bringing together a whole community of people committed to making
inclusion a reality for all children and young people. There will
be personal stories, headteachers sharing why inclusion means so
much to their schools and a chance to think about 'what next'!
Monday 20th June 2016, London
'As part of its commitments under articles 7 and 24 of the
United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities, the UK Government is committed to inclusive education
of disabled children and young people and the progressive removal
of barriers to learning and participation in mainstream education.
The Children and Families Act 2014 secures the general presumption
in law of mainstream education in relation to decisions about where
children and young people with SEN should be educated and the
Equality Act 2010 provides protection from discrimination for
disabled people.' SEND Code of practice (section 1:27)
However, the number of children and young people attending
special and alternative education has increased and there is little
evidence that this commitment is being implemented.
This event will bring together people who are working to make
inclusive education a reality, despite the many challenges.
We will work together to offer responses to the following
- That including disabled children and young people in mainstream
schools doesn't deliver the education they need.
- That having disabled children and young people in mainstream
schools has a negative impact on other children and young
- That inclusive education is not possible without more
- That there is no evidence that inclusion works.
By the end of the event, we will have documented the big areas
to be tackled, have an action plan offering solutions, as well as
people committed to start making those solutions happen ….so, if
you think inclusive education is the only way forward, and are
interested in working with people who feel the same, this is the
event for you!
The event is aimed at anyone interested in being part of making
inclusive education work, including:
- Children, young people and their families
- Decision makers in local authorities (education and social
care) and the NHS
- Schools and colleges
The cost per delegate is £85 inc vat. Book your place
