Recent Staff Training

Team Teach:

Many members of staff have recently been trained in Team Teach. Team Teach is the holistic approach we use to support people who may exhibit more challenging behaviours.
The approach is based on a risk reduction approach, involving de-escalation strategies, diversion and as a last resort physical intervention.

Autism:
St Patrick's Staff in both Key Stages have recently undertaken ASD training, which was carried out by the Kirklees Autism Outreach team (KAOS). We all now have a greater awareness and understanding in this area.
 
Speech and Language:
Some staff have received up-to-date Makaton training which is being used effectively with children with Speech and Language difficulties.
