Keeping up, not catching up for SEND learners
– engendering independence from Year 7 to GCSE
There will be many children transitioning into Year 7 in September who will struggle to cope with the increasingly complex reading and writing tasks expected at secondary school level. For some, COVID-19-related school closures have widened this literacy gap even further. Join Jules Daulby, a renowned literacy specialist and DfE inclusion expert, for a live webinar in which she will explore how to maximise your COVID catch-up funding by investing in resources that enable SEND learners to thrive from day one, as part of a long-term educational pathway.
In this free 30-minute session, Jules will highlight how assistive technology tools like DocsPlus will:
- Make the most of any new hardware the school has access to via the DfE’s free laptop/tablet scheme
- Build on the newfound skills of pupils and teachers whilst they have been working remotely
- Reduce teacher workload in the areas of differentiation and personalisation
- Remove barriers to learning success across the curriculum
- Engender student independence in lessons and exams
Registrants can join the webinar from 3:30pm onward, but it will start promptly at 3:45pm.
