Dr Rachel Lofthouse has contributed to the SEND regional conference

Dr Rachel Lofthouse has contributed workshop to the SEND regional conference on Monday 7th November.  This was organised by Percy Hedley, Epinay, Sunningdale and The Dales - the four special needs Teaching Schools in the North East, and brought together over 200 delegates from both special and mainstream settings.

In her workshop, which was focused on Professional Enquiry she explored delegates' prior knowledge of enquiry and offered a cyclical model to support understanding. Participants were then asked to reflect on the formal SEND sessions that they had experienced during the morning and identify aspects of interest which they might trigger their own professional enquiries in their own settings.
