Barnet Virtual SEND Conference
10th / 11th / 12th November 2020
Our annual Barnet SEND Conference was held virtually over three days. It included a series of presentations and workshops all touching on the theme of recovery and beyond.
This was a free conference for Barnet parents, carers and professionals that was jointly organised by education, health, social care and representatives of the Barnet SEND parent community.
Our keynote speaker, Professor Barry Carpenter, provided a truly inspirational and thought-provoking presentation sharing ideas, concepts and research behind the Recovery Curriculum think piece as well as many wonderful resources and reminding us of the importance of 'reconnecting, rejoining and rebuilding'.
Thank you to all our presenters who provided such engaging, thoughtful and informative sessions for our SEND community.
Thank you also to all our parents, carers, and professionals who joined, participated and made it a collaborative event.
