The team uses a consultation approach to support the inclusion of pupils with additional needs in relation to cognition and learning and communication difficulties (autistic spectrum disorders). Consultations are used to support school staff to identify needs, to devise appropriate strategies and approaches to meet needs, to provide bespoke CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and to review special educational provision in place. The Additional Needs Team offers a helpline for Sencos and co-ordinates Senco network meetings.
