About the speakers

Simon Tanner - Director of SEND, Bohunt Trust

As a firm believer that 'All teachers are teachers of SEND', Simon will describe the systems that make up the successful SEND strategy within the Bohunt Education trust and apply that to the everyday pedagogy of the classroom teacher.
