What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the school?

The SENCO (Mrs Willis) is completing the accredited National SENCO Award, and liaises with many specialist services and outside experts, to ensure provision for our pupils is appropriate and meets all needs.  The school works closely with any external agencies that are relevant to individual students’ needs, including:

  • Educational Psychologist
  • School Nurse
  • Speech and Language therapy
  • CAMHS ( Child and adolescent mental health service)
  • Social Services, child protection teams, family intervention programmes
  • SEND services - hearing impairment, physical disabilities, communication and language,
  • Health – GPs, school nurse,  paediatricians, , occupational therapists.

 

An educational Psychologist is allocated to each school. He/She would normally only work directly with pupils who have been referred by the SENCo. Children are referred if their needs are felt to be quite considerable and have not responded well to the interventions previously put in place for them.  In order to help them understand the pupil’s educational needs better, the psychologist will generally meet with the parents and give feedback after the assessment has been completed. He/she will offer advice to the school and parent/carer on how to best support the pupil in order to take their learning forward

Each school is assigned a SEND advisor to help support the school and the SENCo.
