How are teachers in school helped to work with children with SEND, and what training do the teachers have?

The SENCo’s job is to support the class teacher in planning for children with SEN.

The school provides training and support to enable all staff to improve the teaching and learning of children, including those with SEN. This includes whole school training on SEN issues, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and speech and language difficulties.  Training is also provided where appropriate to meet a child’s medical needs.

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 Autism Outreach Team, Speech and Language Therapists, precision teaching, how to support pupils with dyslexic traits and/ or a diagnosis of dyslexia, attendance at termly SENCO update and many more
