Staff at Arc School Napton

Specialist teaching and support staff have been recruited and trained to deliver each of the curriculum areas. Support to staff and pupils comes from various sources depending on need and could be the school nurse, Looked after Children Education Services (SIBS), Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services, charities and support organisations, counselling and anger management services.

The majority of staff have received Level 2, and some Level 3 training in Autism Awareness, delivered by the Autism Education Trust (AET), as the Autism friendly approaches benefit all learners. The school is in the early stages of looking at the AET competency and standards framework as there is a commitment to provide the most effective provision for pupils with autism. Can this be edited as follows:

We also focus our training on supporting learners with attachment disorders and difficulties on social interaction and communication.

All staff undergo Team Teach positive handling training which has a firm emphasis on de-escalation techniques in order to manage difficult situations safely.
