SEND Searchlights series

Taking no longer than a coffee break, the second of our monthly SEND-themed webinar "SEND Searchlights” offers a space to ask your burning SEND assessment questions and to share knowledge and experience with colleagues from across the world!

Dates and times available are:

  • 11th June 2024 - 8:00am - 8:30am

Within the first forums, the following questions were discussed:

  • How can assessment data be used to effectively identify and support students with barriers to learning
  • How can I support learners with additional / SEND needs during testing?

These informal forums will be facilitated by GL Assessment’s Emma Dibden and Polly Marsh, who bring their experience as former SENCos to bear as they answer questions posed by you, the educators working on the ground, and provide guidance on how to use assessment data to effectively identify and support your students who may be experiencing barriers to learning.
