We have a broad school-based programme of in-service training for teachers and teaching assistants. During 2016-17 various members of staff participated in the following: National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination; Advanced Safeguarding Training; Resilience training for Vulnerable Pupils, Attention Autism; Good Practice in Autism (Autism Education Trust training); Attachment Disorder training; Working with Hearing Impaired Pupils; support for pupils with Speech and Language needs; Mindfulness training; Developmental Co-ordination Disorder training
Further training for staff is linked to appraisal and/or to the needs/priorities of the school as set out in the school development plan
We are able to access other training for example through our links with external agencies i.e. the school nurse (e.g. training on emergency medication) and the Educational Psychologist.
