Conference for Pastoral Leaders 2020

Supporting the personal development and academic progress of young people in schools

Delivered in association with the National Association of Pastoral Care in Education (NAPCE) and UK Pastoral Chat, our Conference for Pastoral Leaders 2020 is more important than ever.

The ASCL Conference for Pastoral Leaders is a well-established event in the educational calendar, and brings professionals with pastoral roles and responsibilities in primary, secondary and post-16 education together to network and share good practice.

Delegates will explore the latest developments and critical issues facing pastoral leadership, and have opportunities to reflect on and develop their own practice. 

Key topics
•    Preventing exclusions 
•    Championing difference
•    Building mentally healthy schools
•    The Ofsted 2019 Education Inspection Framework 
•    The ethical challenge posed by off-rolling 
•    Noticing and responding to vulnerability

Through a combination of plenary sessions and workshops, delegates will explore and contribute to a vision for pastoral care that responds to current dilemmas and opportunities, meets the diverse needs of learners, supports academic achievement, and develops holistic skills and values.
