Testimonials from BCP School staff
- The Outreach support has been the most valuable service we have accessed this year. The child is absolutely held at the centre of what the Outreach teachers do but they never forget about the adults involved and are excellent at supporting them to develop their knowledge and expertise. The children have made exceptional progress as a direct result of Outreach support. Thanks to the Outreach service, we are now able to better support children’s needs and they are able to access the classroom without being a danger to themselves or others. Phenomenal!
- Feedback from staff about the courses they have attended is always really positive. The training is relevant and purposeful and always gives staff practical advice they can take into their practice immediately. There is always a good balance of course content and practical activities and I like that some of the half day training is still delivered virtually. The variety of courses on offer is exceptional, especially for speech and language.
- Linwood Outreach Support has made a huge difference to the quality of provision we are offering to some of our students with SEND and improved the knowledge and skills of our staff team. The support is fair, non-judgemental and fundamentally holds the child at the centre of everything they do.We are in debt to this service and incredibly grateful for the comprehensive support we have been given.
- The training offered by LTSA is fantastic and covers by far the widest and most detailed offer I have received in over 20 years of teaching. The support for such a wide range of Special Educational Needs is incredible and I have learned so much, all of which I use on a daily basis in my school!
