How are teachers at the school supported in working with children with SEN/D and what training do they have?

Part of the SENDCO’s role in school is to support the class teacher in teaching children with SEND

Recent SEND specific training for staff is as follows:

 

  • ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant)
  • Mindfulness Teaching Strategies
  • Supporting Sensory Processing Difficulties in the Classroom
  • Lego Therapy
  • Cued Articulation
  • Read Write Inc.
  • Precision Teaching
  • Socially Thinking (Zones of Regulation)

 

Individual teachers and support staff attend specialist training courses run by outside agencies that are relevant to the needs of specific children in their class e.g. Team Teach Training, Selective Mutism Training.

 

The SENDCO is available to provide support for all staff on a needs basis, and operates an ‘open door’ policy. All information to support the teaching of children with SEND is available and transparent, and a bank of resources is free to all staff on the server and in the SENDCO office.
