New course - Effective health and safety for children with SEND

New course - Effective health and safety for children with SEND

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new course to help schools support children with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND) or Additional Support Need (ASN).

Dawn Jothamour Pastoral Care Expert, explains why we have chosen this subject area for our latest course: 

“All children and young people are entitled to an education. Some pupils with SEND and ASN may need adjustments to be made to the school day and school environment to help them access mainstream education. In doing so, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 must be adhered to, to help keep pupils, staff and volunteers safe.

"This course can help you understand more about managing risk and making reasonable adjustments."
