Baycroft School Outreach Service

Keep an eye out for our fortnightly podcast! 

 

 

Baycroft outreach service aims to support local mainstream schools to build capacity and enable mainstream colleagues to maximise teaching and learning potential for their students with SEND. We offer a range of outreach services that support and promote the development of inclusive educational practices and remove barriers to learning for students including:

  • Advice and support for classroom learning and behaviour management strategies to support children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) including; Autistic Spectrum Continuum (ASC), Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues (SEMH) and Learning Difficulties.
  • Staff professional development including whole school, departmental and individual staff training and coaching.
  • Consultation and advice on classroom management and organisation to promote best practice for SEND.
  • Examples of and support with creating appropriately differentiated curriculum plans, schemes of work and resources.
  • In-house training, observations and workshops throughout the year.
  • Modelled teaching and staff coaching for Teachers and Learning Support Assistants.

“The outreach provided by Baycroft School has enabled us to identify suitable resources and train staff to support pupils with a diverse range of SEND. They make good progress academically and successfully integrate with their peers.”

Training and Events

Our training workshops are very popular and often over-subscribed. These are usually led by your needs and suggestions, or common themes which crop up in our work with schools. They all contribute to more effective classroom behaviour management strategies and better support for students with ASC and learning needs. But in doing so, we explore issues such as; ‘The Power of Language’, ‘Sensory and Sorry’,  ‘Demand Avoidance – Pathological or Perennial?’, ‘Resources and Sources’ (very practical session) and ‘Differentiated and Dynamic Classroom Language’.  These can be requested and will be laid on subject to demand. We are always keen to receive feedback and ideas for what you would find useful, too, so please do email us with any thoughts. Equally for our podcasts, which will be starting up in the second half of term.
