Staff Induction

Entering into a career within special education is an exciting step. However, we recognise that it can also be challenging, especially for those who have limited experience of working within an educational setting or with young people with learning disabilities.

Therefore, we have developed a robust induction package to support people joining the school. The support offered will be determined by the role taken on, the employee’s previous experience and the class in which they are placed.

All new staff complete a six-month probationary period and during this time, they are invited to attend probationary meetings with our HR Manager. This provides an opportunity for the new employee to discuss the progress they are making towards meeting the competencies for their role and to raise any concerns or questions.

Induction sessions are run throughout the working day to inform staff on school policies and practices. Training is also offered in the following areas:


ASD Awareness

Team Teach



Attention Autism

Intensive Interaction

Universal Safeguarding

Manual Handling

First Aid


Health & Safety
