The Specialist Teaching and Learning Service for the Shepway District aims to advise and support Early Years settings and schools to build the capacity, and confidence to deliver high quality provision and inclusive practice for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), to improve pupil progress and outcomes.

We are so excited to offer you our brand new website. Please give us a review to let us know if there would be anything you would like to change!

OUR TEAM

OUR SPECIALIST OUTREACH TEAM

A collaborative, solution focus approach, using the skills knowledge, expertise and experience of the STLS team together with that of the Beacon staff and our mainstream colleagues and partners is fundamental to our support and advisory role.

 

We feel that both pupil and parent voice and participation is vital to ensuring successful outcomes for all parties, and are central to our work at all stages.

We are very excited with the prospect of developing even closer working relationships and easier access to information and advice.

Our work in supporting settings, schools, pupils and parents in the Shepway community will benefit not only from this collaboration but also by being able to call on the expertise within the Beacon teaching and learning staff. Mainstream staff can visit and observe outstanding practise in our classrooms and staff will share resources and advice with our mainstream colleagues.

This joint working will also benefit our pupils as our staff will be able to visit our neighbouring schools to see how they work and also to look at opportunities for some of our pupils/classes to work with mainstream peers.
