We have opportunities for regular INSET delivered by our staff and outside specialist services. We identify training needs with all teaching and support staff and ensure our School Development Plan includes such appropriate training opportunities.
Our school buys into Hounslow’s Continued Professional Development Service where staff can enrol on courses run by Hounslow borough to ensure up to date knowledge and expertise and the opportunity to further develop professional skills.
We have experienced teaching and support staff who have received training in a range of specific interventions aimed at supporting children with additional needs.
We request training by specialist agencies as and when there is a need.These include the Speech and Language Therapy Service, EIS learning or behaviour advisory teachers and the Educational Psychology Service.
Staff at St Lawrence School are informed and updated on SEND matters on a regular basis through staff meetings, INSET and individual meetings with the SENCO.
