More information about the training and experience of the SEND & Inclusion Team
The SEND and Inclusion Team is led by a SENDCo, who is completing the National SENDCo Award and has experience working with a range of pupils with SEND. The SENDCo is supported by a wider network: regularly attending SENDCo briefing and training days, provided by both Greenwood Academies Trust and the local authority, to update their knowledge and understanding of SEN provision, practice and requirements.
Teaching assistants and key workers have lengthy and wide-ranging experience of working with children with a variety of different and additional needs.
Our inclusion worker has extensive experience of working with children and families in different settings. She has undertaken training courses in areas of mental health, counselling, therapy and family support.
All staff within the SEND Team attend training courses related to specific difficulties or areas of practice to keep their knowledge updated.
