The longest established feature of the SWALSS calendar is the Headteachers Conference. Held each year at The Grand Hotel, Torquay, the conference showcases a wide range of influential and inspiring speakers and decision makers from across the SEND spectrum. Regular updates from the DfE, Ofsted, the Regional Schools Commissioner, etc. are balanced by ground-breaking voices from the worlds of science and special needs education. Further colour is added to each conference by contributions from outstanding contributors in a variety of wider fields, such as sport and entertainment. Recent conferences have been enriched by contributions from such leading lights as Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Professor Tania Byron and Dame Marie Stubbs.
