How are teachers and support staff helped to work with children with a send and what training do they have?
The SENDCO and Head Teacher attend relevant training, in order to keep their knowledge of SEND and the strategies/interventions up to date along with current developments within SEND.
Their role is to then to deliver or organise training relevant to the needs of the school population, to all members of staff.
All support staff are offered development opportunities from either training run by the school or through courses usually run by the local authority.
During this academic year there has been training on:
- Positive Play
- Sensory issue
- The new framework for Special Educational Need and Disabilities.
