All school staff will receive appropriate training so they have the knowledge and confidence to support children’s needs.
At St James’ 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. Simpson is available for staff to talk to on a Wednesday 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 7 days a week.
