Duration: 1 hr

Beccie Hawes is the Head of Service at Rushall Inclusion Advisory Team – a unique service which supports schools to ensure that their pupils with special educational needs exceed their potential across four different local authorities: Walsall, Birmingham, North Warwickshire and Staffordshire. The service offers support for individual pupils, bespoke INSET session, coaching, mentoring, SENCo support and a busy calendar of training and conference events. Beccie set the service up in partnership with Rushall Primary School and continues to enjoy seeing the service grow. The service prides itself on putting the needs of the pupils that they work with at the heart of everything that they do. Beccie remains very ‘hands on’ in the classroom, and likes to be at the chalk face with teachers and children so she can practice what she preaches. She has over 14 years of experience of teaching children and young people with special educational needs and is a qualified specialist dyslexia teacher having gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties – dyslexia, and Masters degree in Equality and Diversity in Education. She has written ‘The Complete Dyslexia Toolkit’ and co-authored ‘Getting it Right with SEND: A Toolkit for All Primary Schools’
