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.
