SEND Specialist Expertise

The SENCo’s job is to support the class teacher in planning for children with SEND. The SENCo attends network meetings, both within the Local Authority and the Trust, which provide regular updates regarding current developments in Special Educational Needs/Disabilities and Inclusion.

The school has a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Training Plan which provides training and support to enable all staff to improve the teaching and learning of all children, including those with SEND. This includes whole school training on SEND issues. Within our school we have specialist ASD teachers and highly trained staff, allowing internal CPD to take place.

Individual class teachers and support staff attend training courses run by outside agencies that are relevant to the needs of specific children in their class.
