SSAT National Conference 2019

Fighting for deep social justice

4-5 December, ICC Birmingham

At this year's SSAT National Conference, we will be fighting for deep social justice.

Throughout 2019, we are working with schools, other educational organisations, and cross-sector to make the case for deep social justice: a commitment to ensuring that all students leave school fully prepared to lead fulfilled and purposeful lives. This is a grand ambition and one that can be achieved only through strong, principled leadership, working in partnership, and continual review of practice and policy.

At the conference, we will look at what is already happening in schools across the country, but also what more we can do together, going into the 2020s.

Through high-profile main stage speakers, practical 'how-to' workshops, and SSAT masterclasses, the two days of the conference will cover:

  • What do we mean by 'deep' social justice?
  • What are the challenges schools are facing?
  • What are schools already doing about it?
  • How can we achieve long-term learning?
  • What experiences do young people need to be successful?
  • How can we best engage parents and carers?
  • How can we protect staff and student wellbeing?
  • What sort of leadership is needed to achieve this?
  • What are the next actions?

Join us at the SSAT National Conference to join our fight for deep social justice.
