At St Helen Auckland Community Primary School, our staff hold a wealth of experience to help support children with SEND. All staff receive regular training on working with children with Autism, Sensory and Perception difficulties, Motor difficulties, dyslexia, ADHD and behavioural, social and emotional difficulties.
Members of our team are trained in delivering Speech and Language programmes. Also, we have a learning mentor who is accessible to the children whenever required and provides support to individuals and groups on social, emotional and behavioural issues they are experiencing. Our Parent Support Advisor works closely with the SENCO and parents to listen to and act upon any concerns, providing a supportive and nurturing team where the child’s needs are at the centre. We currently have children with a variety of needs in school including:
