What training is available for staff who are supporting children with SEND?
The school identifies training needs for all staff to improve the teaching and learning of children including those with SEND. This may include whole school training on SEND issues or to support identified groups of learners in school, such as those with autism etc; whole staff training to share knowledge, strategies and experience and ensure consistency of the school’s approach for children with SEND. Teachers and support staff attend training courses run by outside agencies that are relevant to the needs of specific children in their class.
The SENCO and teacher work closely with specialists from external support services that may provide advice or direct support as appropriate.
