What training have staff who are supporting children with SEND had or are receiving?

Learning

Our school’s Special needs coordinator (SENDCo) is Kate Samways who has completed the National Award for SEND Coordination. She advises class teachers about the provision they make for children with SEND and has responsibility for our whole school provision. 
 
All the learning support programmes, known as interventions, at our school are delivered by staff who have had training in running these groups.
 
We have an ongoing programme of training in place for both teachers and teaching assistants to ensure that they have up to date knowledge of a wide range of needs and how best to meet these needs. Many of our staff have completed National Association for Special Educational Needs (NASEN) training.
