To support the school to deliver high quality education, the experienced clinical team provide direct therapy and oversight to the children and young people in our school.
The Clinical Team are there to ensure that they have the necessary tools (communication strategies / emotional and sensory regulation strategies) to able to access and enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum.
Our clinical therapeutic offer includes:
- Speech and Language Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Clinical Psychology
- Support to access other types of therapy as required
Upon entry to the school the team work with each pupil, as well as their parents or carers, to develop a communication profile and sensory profile which will become part of their daily school life, enabling the pupil and staff to help them to build on their strengths and increase their resilience around any identified areas of need.
The clinical therapy team operate predominately using an integrated therapeutic model. This largely consists of different therapeutic disciplines working together to provide training, consultation, and modelling of strategies for staff within the classroom. This ensures that clinical provision is integrated into the whole school environment, and that pupils learn to implement and generalise the use of skills regularly, with the guidance of their support staff.
