Supporting staff

We work with a number of other agencies to support pupils

Therapy Services are on site to support pupils:

There are 2 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 in to the Individualised Educational Programme which every child has.

Speech & Language Therapists: Lynn McKerron, Jen Cooper

Physiotherapist: Rachael Livingston

Occupational Therapist: Fern Adam

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