What professionals do you work with to support children?
We work closely with several outside agencies who we may seek support from when the interventions we are using in school are not having a significant impact on your child. This would always be discussed with you beforehand. The specialist professional will then work closely with your child to fully understand their needs and make recommendations for the next steps. We have good relationships with these specialists and families find their support invaluable in offering helpful advice. They include:
Education: Education Psychologist, BCP Outreach (offering support from local specialist schools), Learning Support Services, Speech and Language Therapy (SALT).
Health: School Nurse, Community Paediatrician, Child Development Centre, Children and Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Health Visitors, Occupational Therapy, Diabetic Nurse.
Care/Social: Early Help, Children’s Social Care, The Virtual School, Wessex Autism, Young Carers.
