Hailed as the ‘best ever Exchange ‘ the feedback from the 111 attendees at this week’s two sessions held at Birkenhead Town Hall was pleasingly really positive.
We enjoyed a great spread of speakers and attendees. Information sharing, SEND support organisations, Well-being and an update on many of the newly introduced SEND interventions. Thank you to all who attended and those who kindly presented.

Alex Newman – SENCO from Overchurch Infants Primary shared news on the fabulous work the children, their parent/carers and teachers have been doing to raise awareness of a neuro-diverse school and community resulting in them winning an award from the ADHD Foundation for being the first Neuro diverse friendly school in the country! Congratulations to Headteacher Mr Elliott and his team.
Catherine O’Connor – Wirral’s Principal Educational Psychologist updated SENCOs on recent SEND interventions and how to access them for the benefit of their setting.
