How are staff trained to support my child?

How does Sir John Lillie Primary School ensure the teaching staff are appropriately trained to support my child’s special educational needs and/or disability?  

  • At Sir John Lillie Primary School we believe that your child’s learning needs will first be met through the high quality teaching delivered by his/her class teacher.
  • We regularly review the school training schedule and professional development for all teaching and support staff to ensure there is the appropriate expertise to support children with special educational needs.
  • The school is able to access training programmes from different organisations.
  • Individual training can also be arranged when necessary.
  • We liaise with outside agencies/professionals such as Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Behaviour Support Specialists and Queensmill Outreach Service.
