How are the teacher’s in school helped to work with children with Special Educational Needs or Disability and what training do they have?
The Inclusion Manager’s job is to support the class teachers in planning for children with SEND.
As part of the performance management cycle, the school has a training plan for all staff to improve the teaching and learning of children including those with SEND.
