Learning Support Advisory Teachers (LSAT)

The Learning Support Advisory Team consists of teachers who specialise in working with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Across the team, we have a variety of experience working in a range of different educational settings. We work closely with children and young people in school, aged 4 to 18, as well as supporting teaching assistants and school support workers, teachers, Special Educational Needs Coordinators and senior leadership staff.

What we offer

Our vision is to work collaboratively to create sustainable and confident schools, with children and parents being at the heart of provision. As well as being a first point of contact for schools to identify and assess children with Special Educational Needs, we offer advice and support to enable all children and young people to achieve their full potential.

If required, we provide advice and support for SENCOs in identifying those children who should be on the Special Educational Needs register. 

We also offer a wide variety of courses, CPD and conferences along with in-school group intervention guidance.  This enables settings to build their capacity and use the strengths within their staff team.
