Staffing Expertise

How skilled are staff in meeting the needs of my child?


An ongoing programme of training is in place to ensure that teachers and support staff have appropriate skills and knowledge in areas that will improve their teaching and support of children with SEND.


Training is planned to cover:

  • Phonics
  • Mathematics interventions
  • Dyslexia Friendly classrooms
  • Occupational Health


Our SENCO actively engages with local opportunities to share best practice and keep abreast of current local and national initiatives and policy to support pupils with SEN.


The school also seeks advice and guidance from local special schools to review, evaluate and develop provision for pupils who have the most complex needs.
