WestlandsFirst School

What training have the staff had to support my child?

Staff delivering SEN support programmes are supported by the school’s SENCO, class teachers and a range of external professionals e.g. SALT therapist, Learning Support Teacher, Autism/CCN specialist teachers and Educational Psychologist.

SEN training for teaching staff and teaching assistants is planned into the school calendar annually.

Most staff have received Positive Physical Intervention training to safely support children who are demonstrating unsafe behaviours (these incidents are always recorded and are very rare).

Teaching staff have received updated information regarding the SEND Code of Practice 2014 and we currently have four Communication Teaching Assistants, who work throughout the school.
