Staff Training


staff training 1Staff training and development: 

An important aspect of what we do is ensuring that we always stay upto date so our knowledge is fresh and relevant. We also like to try new training to bring new ideas to the Pre- School about how children learn and develop. There are also statutory courses that we need to undertake to ensure that we can deal with any safeguarding concerns (see safeguarding tab) and first aid etc. 

Below you will find a table of what our staff team have been working towards this year, if you have any questions or would like some more information on how the training has impacted the setting then please ask and we would be happy to share our learning with you.

Wednesday 4th September 2019 

On Wednesday afternoon we had Claire Barwood from the Midas center come into the setting to complete 3 hours training with us on Autism awareness training. We learnt alot about how to spot the signs of autism and how drs and other professionals will come to the decision to diagnose. We then disucssed what it is like to be an autistic child and how our rotuines at Pre -School need to be adapted to suit the needs of all our children. As a staff team we found the training so beneficial to us in understanding the world through an autistic child's world. If you have any concerns then please come and speak to your child's key person and SENCO and we can support you in anyway we can. 

 

 Wednesday 27th March 2019 

Today we paid for an adviser from The Education People to come into the setting and train us all on letters and sounds. This was paid for from the EYPP money that the setting recieves. 

We looked at phase one letters and sounds and explored the 7 areas which are the building blocks to children learning to read through letter sounds and segmenting. 

The training was hands on and gave us lots of ideas that we can impliment in the setting with groups of children. Keep a look out for some parent packs that we will be creating to support the letters and sounds framework at home. 

If you have any questions then please do ask the staff they will be happy to share with you what we have been learning. 

Please find some photos below of the staff interacting in the training afternoon......

We went outside to explore the sounds that we could hear....we then played a game singing higher and lower when the person was near the hidden object.
