How is specialist expertise accessed and to what extent to staff within school undergo training in relation to children with SEND?

School has access to qualified and specialist staff to support the range of needs identified, provided by the Local Authority. These include; Educational Psychologists, Visual Specialists, Speech and Language Therapists, Inclusion Consultants, and Occupational Therapists. This expertise is accessed via the SENCo.


Training opportunities for staff, including teachers and teaching assistants, to match identified areas for development, are provided when necessary. This may be via in house training or that from the Local Authority to ensure that all staff have the knowledge and skills required to best support pupils in their classes/intervention groups.


Classroom teachers have the skills required to fulfil the demands of the graduated approach (see additional information), particularly with regard to the deployment of teaching assistants and monitoring of interventions.
