What training do staff supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities have?

In order for inclusion to be successful, all of our staff benefit from on-going access to support, training and resources.  A key aspect of this is mutual support and we readily share expertise between members of our staff with parents and carers so that we can work as a team most effectively to support children.  Outside professionals are frequently involved in training with staff, parents and carers.

As new needs and educational research arise staff are provided with up-to-date training.
