It has been 2 ½ years since we last had the opportunity to be together, learning, inspiring and gleaning from each other. That was March 2019 at Wynstones! Now, we’ve emerged from our isolation and webinar overdoses, and we meet an unmissable opportunity to come together again and be inspired by 2 colleagues with particular passion, interest and expertise.

Join us for a “Sensing Journey – building an inclusion ethos, focusing on strengths and turning SEND upside down”

The day will be particularly relevant for School Leaders, SENDCos, Learning Support Teachers, Designated Trustees for SEND and Teaching Assistants.

Those attending the day will be guided and given the opportunity to:

  • put Steiner Waldorf provision at the centre and look at the living beings of their school through a different lens
  • Listen to one another – the words as well as the space between
  • Let go of personal and organisational biases
  • Let co-creation of new impulses and prototyping new directions and actions grow
  • Be inspired, enthusiastic and hopeful about the future!
