Another fab turnout with 75 Wirral SEND professionals attending across the two events. For anyone unable to make it here are the PowerPoint slides and feedback analysis for your perusal. It was great to meet our new SENCOs and give them a warm welcome and from your feedback it was evident again just how useful you find the time to network and problem solve with one another. Contact details were getting shared and some mutually beneficial partnerships established. Led by SEN Managers Ben Blake and Victoria Whitton, the SEN Team were on hand to answer any child specific questions and the increased number of attendees from Secondary schools and Colleges was really pleasing. As standard we ask for you feedback to help us gain a better appreciation of what works well and what doesn’t. In turn, we shape subsequent Exchanges around your ‘wish list’ of services to present and endeavour to find ways to support you in the areas you have highlighted as training needs.
Thanks to Claire Robinson and Jacqui Wood from SALT for their training session (see slides) and to Peter Davies and Vanessa Ikin for their overview of Sensory service provision in Wirral. The Local Offer lists all their contact details, eligibilty criteria and referral forms. Spring term dates for your diaries are Tuesday pm March 5th and Wednesday am March 6th.
