Are staff trained to deal with special educational needs?
All school staff will receive appropriate training so they have the knowledge and confidence to support children’s needs.
At St Columba’s we hold a weekly staff meeting. These are used to ensure staff have up-to-date knowledge to teach children of all abilities.
Sometimes training is run by specialists e.g. Epipen training or training by a member of the Communication and Autism Team.
Mrs Yarnold is available for staff to talk to before and after school; they can ask for advice about teaching approaches and resources for children with additional needs. She is also contactable by e-mail email@example.com during the working week.
