How are Staff Trained?
All staff are trained in recognising SEN and the procedures involved in monitoring provision and assessing the impact. As a staff we receive training, sometimes as a whole school or off site courses. Class Teachers often have their own areas of specialism for example ASD or Dyslexia and via training become best positioned to support across the school. Training could be provided by the local specialist schools, Educational Psychology, Specialist Teaching and Learning Service, Speech and Language Therapy, or other outside agencies where there is an area of identified need.
The SENCo has completed the Postgraduate Certificate in SEN Co-ordination and the National Award for SEN Co-ordination.
