SEND Conference Success

20 October 2022

Over 300 delegates attended our first face to face SEND conference for over two years during the summer. The event, organised by Cheshire East Council’s inclusion and quality team, was held at Cranage Hall and aimed to support SENCO , professionals and parents – providing opportunities to hear key speakers sharing key national, regional and local updates as well as the opportunity to network.

Delegates were also able to attend up to four workshops covering subjects such as speech and language, mental health, early years and supported internships.

We’ve had some great feedback, which we have shared below, and recordings are available for those who were unable to attend.  Please contact for these.

A short film of the event is also available.


I thought the day was very well organised and it was clear that all participants were enjoying the workshops and stands. I think you provide good exposure to companies and organisations working with Cheshire East’

‘I would 100% recommend the conference to other schools moving forward and I will be speaking with other LA about what is happening in Cheshire East and how they could do something similar in the future.’

‘Really good day overall and we'll definitely be there next year!’

‘It exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The workshops were informative and I gained a lot from them.’

‘Thought the conference was great - really good turn out and nice atmosphere - seemed that everyone was glad to be back at events networking after two years of Covid.’

‘A brilliant conference thank you, the topics on offer covered every conceivable angle.’

‘In awe of the organisation and variety of speakers and workshops - brilliant work everyone.’
