Suffolk Virtual School Conference 2024 

Know me to teach me
Tuesday 11 June - Wednesday 12 June 2024
Venue: Trinity Park, Ipswich 

We are inviting school staff, social workers, carers and other partners from across the Local Authority and education sector to book their place at our conference. Each day will feature keynote speakers and a range of workshops designed to be thought provoking, interactive and provide delegates with opportunities to reflect and take away ideas about how their practice can help our children and young people to maximise their potential.
