The knowledge, skills and attributes developed through effective provision of PSHE are key to enabling pupils with special needs to access the broader curriculum, keep themselves safe and in preparing them for life and work.  However, making the PSHE curriculum meaningful and accessible to pupils with SEND can pose a challenge.

During this one day workshop we explore PSHE education through the lens of those teaching pupils with special educational needs.  This includes a critical look at a range of teaching and learning strategies and available resources to ensure that we provide effective PSHE for these learners.

Attending this workshop will enable you to:

  • Understand how to effectively plan, teach and assess PSHE education
  • Interpret PSHE best practice for use within a variety of SEND contexts
  • Overcome key barriers to effective PSHE provision when working with pupils with SEND
  • Develop teaching strategies and access resources which ensure high quality provision

Who should attend?

PSHE leads and teachers working with learners with special educational needs in any setting.

All delegates attending get to take a memory stick of useful resources back to their school and have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and meet other teachers. Lunch and morning refreshments are provided.

100% of people who attended this course in 2016 thought it was always excellent, very good or good.
