Support Staff

We work with a number of other agencies including NHS and Social Care to support our learners and their families.

Therapy Services are available to support our learners.

Currently we are supported by Speech & Language Therapists, an Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist working part time in the school. Their work involves supporting pupils, staff and families with programmes of work linking into learners’ Individualised Educational Programmes. We are also supported by NHS Forth Valley’s Paediatric Complex Care Nursing Team.

The school also works very closely with Psychological Services, Social Care and NHS Forth Valley to support learners and their families. Sometimes we will develop partnerships with other agencies and organisations, if we believe it will benefit our learners.
