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.  External 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.

Currently staff have received training in –

  • Teamteach – a positive approach to supporting behaviour and de-escalating challenging situations involving positive handling.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Down’s Syndrome.
  • Dyslexia.
  • Dyspraxia.
  • Precision teaching.
