Staff Training: How are the adults in school helped to work with children with SEND and what training do they have?
The SENCO’s job is to support the class teacher in planning for children with SEND.
The school has a school development plan, including identified 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 ASD, dyslexia, differentiation, etc.
Whole staff training to disseminate knowledge, strategies and experience, to ensure consistency of the school’s approach for children with an SEND.
Individual teachers and support staff attend training courses run by outside agencies that are relevant to the needs of specific children in their class e.g. from the ASD Outreach service, STEPS and Sensory service or medical /health training to support staff in implementing care plans.
Training takes place on a regular basis. If you would like to hear about the training which is currently taking place or has taken place by the staff members in the school, please speak to the Headteacher or the AHT for Inclusion/SEN.
