  • Emotion Coaching
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • SOLO Taxonomy
  • Understanding Attachment, Trauma and Loss
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Challenging Behaviour
  • Speech Language and Communication Needs: Communication Friendly Environments

  • Dyslexia training
  • Social stories
  • Meta-cognition and self-regulation strategies
  • Makaton

The SENDCo is constantly looking for opportunities to further develop staff’s training. Future courses will be booked in line with the needs of children in the school at the time.
As is statutory, the SENDCo has recently completed the National Award in Special Educational Needs Coordination. As part of this, they also achieved a Postgraduate Certificate in Vulnerable Learners and Inclusion from Bath Spa University.
