Question 7

Question 7 – How are teachers helped to support SEND

The SENCo’s job is to support the class teacher in planning for children with SEND.
• The school provides training and support to enable all staff to improve the teaching and learning of children, including those with SEN. This includes whole school training on SEN issues, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and speech and language difficulties.
• 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 Support Service for Special Educational Needs (SSSEN) or Autism Outreach Service.
