Webinar: Managing Pupils with Complex Special Needs in Mainstream and Special School Settings

Event Date: 18 June 2020

On Thursday 18 June we hosted a webinar discussing Managing Pupils with Complex Special Needs in Mainstream and Special School Settings with our Education Team.

At this webinar we discussed the challenges that school leaders may face including:

  • New admission policies,
  • Restraint and behaviour management
  • Personal care needs
  • Staffing
  • A new interim model for the allocation of SNAs.

The COVID-19 “Return to Work Safety Protocol” will place extra demands in relation to cough/sneeze etiquette, social distancing, cleaning routines,  transport, accommodating essential visitors to include therapists and possibly the use of personal protective equipment.

At this webinar discussed all of the above in order to assist schools in discharging their duty of care to the most vulnerable pupils.
