We have a highly skilled staff team of teachers, teaching assistants, family support workers, therapists, administrative staff, premises staff and governors. We regard parents as part of our team and we also work closely with our LA colleagues. Each member of our team is focused on delivering a curriculum and school experience that supports the safety, well-being and learning of each pupil.
We invest considerable time and resources in developing the skills and understanding of our team to support high quality learning outcomes. This development includes training and guidance from our therapy teams so that staff gain further insight into how to increase each pupil’s learning capacity. The impact is evident in an increased rate of progress for many pupils.
Our family worker support team identifies and supports pupils and families under pressure. They focus on growing family resilience to better meet pupils’ emotional and well-being needs. Our family workers collaborate with a range of partners and co-professionals to support the physical and mental health needs of a number of our families.
Our therapy team is also involved in this family support work. In addition to working directly with individual pupils, our therapists also run courses for parents and carers as well as training for staff.
