  • Individual teachers and support staff attend training courses run by outside agencies that are relevant to the needs of specific children in their class e.g from the Autism Advisory Teacher, Specialist Teacher for children with Down Syndrome.
  • The SENDCo has completed the National Accredited Training for SEND.
  • The SENDCo also delivers SEND related training to staff.
