Staff Training

Every Leader a Leader of Send

Cornwall Council and Whole School SEND organised a series of online workshops for school leadership teams on the essential information and actions for leaders in leading SEND across a school or multi-academy trust. The training was led by Malcom Reeve, National Leader at Whole School SEND, a National Leader in Education (NLE) and author of the SEND Review Framework for multi-academy trusts.  The first workshop, the SEND Code of Practice was attended by all teachers. Mrs Jones and Mrs Green attended all workshops.

Mrs Tattersall recently attended the CAPSA (Cornwall Association of Primary School Administrators) Conference to join colleagues from across the County for a rare chance to share stories, best practice and gain some new knowledge to bring back and share with her colleagues at school!
Along with the keynote speaker Alexis Conran, there was also  input from SAS Wellbeing Experts, and Karen Oldham-Waring, Sunflower Training. 
A charismatic and engaging keynote speaker, Alexis employs his knowledge of the dark and deceptive world of hustling, pickpockets and con-artists to speak candidly on the risks and security threats constantly faced by organisations and consumers.  Having devised and carried out over 500 scams he is in the rare position of being able to advise and educate, even the most foolhardy, on the issues affecting us in the real and virtual world. He also gives an insight into how to interpret human behaviour and body language and the  communication techniques used to inspire confidence.  Mrs Tattersall will be sharing with you some of the tips and warning she learnt from Alexis.
