About this Webinar

At every special school, the needs of children are varied, complex and individualised.  This means we need to work with a much wider range of individuals and professionals than you might find in a mainstream setting.  Through our experiences with a wide range of special schools – and special provisions within mainstream schools – we know that our leadership and communication approaches can support you in getting the best from your pupils, without compromising on standards or expectations.

This 1 hour webinar shares several of our strategies for working with complex teams in, and beyond, your school setting.  We will look at:

  • A range of forms of communication – and their best uses
  • Active listening as a leader to ensure clarity of communication
  • Planning your challenge – and how to have ‘difficult conversations’
  • Clarifying your expectations to help you bring the best for pupils.


  • Special school subject & middle leaders
  • Special school class teachers and TAs
  • All age ranges
