The conference will be opened by Karen Whitehead, the Strategic Lead for Inclusion and Partnerships at Bury LA
Nina Jackson made a lasting impression on headteachers at this year’s headteacher conference leading to requests to bring her to Bury to speak to a wider audience.
Education is a world of very special people but you will meet few as special as Nina ‘Ninja’ Jackson. With a background in mainstream and special needs education and many years’ experience as a pedagogical and pastoral champion, Nina has a breath-taking grasp of what makes classrooms – and all the people in them – tick.
Nina will speak about the Mental Health Toolkit with particular reference to the importance of a designated mental health lead in schools and what it will mean for children and families. She will refer to the recent green paper – Transforming Children & Young People’s Mental Health Provision.
A buffet lunch will be provided.
After lunch there will be a launch of the Bury Inclusion Quality Mark.
‘Bury’s Inclusion Quality Mark comprises of a set of standards designed to support the development of a shared approach to inclusion in each of Bury’s SEMH Partnerships. CPD can be offered to any Partnership or school through Virtual School services to advise or support schools in achieving each standard. The standards have been agreed through consultation with head teachers and Sencos and will be launched at this conference.’
Paul Delbridge-Smith, Assistant Director (Education and inclusion) will close the conference
