Lincolnshire Inclusion Festival

Tuesday 27th June, Belton Woods Hotel, Grantham, NG32 2LN

THIS FESTIVAL IS A CELEBRATION OF THE WORK, PHILOSOPHIES AND STRATEGIES OF PRACTITIONERS WHO BELIEVE FULLY IN THE CONCEPT OF INCLUSION. DELEGATES WILL BE TREATED TO A DIVERSE RANGE OF SPEAKERS AND WORKSHOPS TO INSPIRE AND INFORM THEIR PRACTICE.

More than ever before, there is a need in education to recognise the unique and diverse needs of our learners to enable them to be included in the education system.

With a high stakes accountability culture, this agenda could be relegated to the side-lines. Speakers such as Dave Whitaker, Executive Principal of Springwell Learning Community in Barnsley (@davewhitaker246) will bring both moral purpose and authentic experience to share with attendees.

And… because we believe that working in education is the best job in the world, we have laid on lovely food, stalls at break time and great people to talk to. This is a festival of celebration.
