This year the Vulnerable Learners conference will focus on re-thinking Inclusion during the tough times. Speakers will outline practical, low-cost strategies that overcome systemic barriers to learning.


Through sharing examples of strong moral leadership, high quality classroom practice, and considering how best to monitor and evaluate approaches designed to meet the needs of the most vulnerable, we want to ensure that schools are better equipped to offer an excellent education to all their pupils, irrespective of the complexity of their needs​.

  • Rachel Cosgrove - Assistant Headteacher at Warriner Academy, Bloxham, leading on 10 minute CPD.

This is an opportunity to hear from some of those leading the field in the education of vulnerable learners, and to take away ideas and examples that will contribute to achieving greater Inclusion and educational excellent for everyone.
