Tailor made inclusion support to build your capacity for inclusion

The Support for Learning Service provides a specialist and flexible service to support schools in providing inclusive education for pupils across the full range of special educational needs, including behaviour support. You can buy experienced SEN teacher time in units of half a day or more for a term or a year. The focus of the work will be negotiated with you individually to make a tailor made package for your school that can develop to meet new needs as they arise. Purchase as "SEN Teacher" for a term or more or "Short Term SLA"  for less than a term.

Please note that we require one term’s notice before the termination of or major adjustment to the level of an SLA
