It’s back and bigger than ever and we are calling on all schools, settings, parents, carers, education leaders, public and third sector organisations and businesses across the UK to join us to ensure that every child is included in education!

Our 2018 annual conference will be held on Wednesday 17th October 2018 at Newbury Racecourse.

The conference will bring together those committed to supporting and delivering change in early years, school and post 16 settings, to ensure that no child is left behind.

Delegates will come together to explore:

  • Prioritising kindness and wellbeing in education, business and third sector settings

  • Ways to ensure education results in a meaningful destination for every child, beginning with the early years

  • Greater focus on teachers as professional learners through recruitment, retention and CPD

  • Reducing exclusion in education and closing the gap for those with SEND

  • Recognition of parents, carers and wider communities in education

Senior government representatives, businesses, public and third sector leaders, schools (state and independent), early years, post-16 and youth justice settings, organisations, children’s services, local authority leads and commissioners as well as parents, carers, children and young people will join forces to discuss and debate ways to increase collaboration and embed practice that make certain every child is included in education.  

Keynote speakers will take delegates through the journey of a child’s education from early years to post 16 (and beyond) drawing on the five priorities outlined in our Every Child Included in Education manifesto

Each keynote session will be interlinked with breakout sessions to demonstrate key issues faced at core phases and stages in education.

Those attending the conference will receive:

  • Focused CPD, particularly related to working with disadvantaged, vulnerable and underachieving children and young people

  • Up-to-date information on current policy related to education, social mobility and disadvantage

  • Strategies to support school, setting and college improvement around the key areas of leadership, teaching and learning, parents and carer engagement and wider opportunities

  • Practical advice on effective partnerships between schools, settings, parents and the wider community
