Preparing For The Future

A Whole School Approach to Improving Access, Participation and Achievement

Training for mainstream schools to meet the needs of all pupils

Welcome to the ‘Whole School Approach to Improving Access, Participation and Achievement’ web pages.  This website has been designed to provide information on whole school development of inclusive strategies to support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Training is funded by the Department for Education (DfE), is FREE to attend and available from September 2012 until the end of March 2013.

If you were unable to attend training or you would like information on training to support children and young people with SEN please visit the main nasen website atwww.nasen.org.uk for latest news and information.

Training seminars, free to attend DfE briefing and SEND Update theatre sessions are available at our two day SEN exhibition and seminar event ‘nasen Live 2013′.  Nasen Live is a dedicated event for professionals working with children and young people with SEN and takes place 22nd and 23rd May 2013 at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton. For more information on nasen Live 2013 visit www.nasenlive.org.uk.

Every teacher is a teacher of special and additional educational needs and disabilities.  Our challenge is to recognise and then to support the needs of all pupils in our care.  For resources and seminars to support all school staff visit nasen Live by clicking on the logo to the right.

About the Training

Background and Introduction

 

The objective of this project is to provide structured and robust professional development training and support to all school stakeholders to enable them to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners within their school.

 

Just over one in five pupils – 1.7 million school-age children in England – are identified as having special educational needs. Pupils with special educational needs are categorised, using the 2001 Special Educational Needs Code of Practice, according to the degree of support they require. Since 2003, the proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs has slightly decreased from 3% to 2.7%, while the proportion identified as needing less intensive additional support at School Action or School Action Plus has increased from 14.0% in 2003 to 17.8% in 2011.

The Training Tool-Kit

 

A Whole School Approach to Improving Access, Participation and Achievement is the tool-kit that we have developed for all schools as a result of the successful bid. The tool-kit offers schools a training programme that is flexible and adaptable to meet the individual needs in each school.

 

The objective of this project is to provide structured and robust professional development training and support to all school stakeholders to enable them to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners within their school.

 

Within the tool-kit folder are four training modules that the SENCO can use to develop training sessions for all staff. Everything within the folder is available on a CD that accompanies the folder and on this website under the ‘Resources’ tab. All materials can be downloaded and adapted to meet the needs of individual schools. Each module is accompanied by a set of training notes, activity sheets and information sheets. The website also has links to all the resources that have been used within the tool-kit plus many more that a SENCO may find useful.
