Therapeutic Support

Our integrated therapeutic model with inputs from Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Clinical Psychology, Art Therapy and massage provides holistic support for developing our students’ knowledge and skills and for improving their well-being and quality of life.  All our therapists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Students have access to a fully equipped Occupational Therapy room complete with climbing wall and sensory integration resources. Some students prefer to work in individual working-bases, which are situated in amongst the classrooms within the school building and help facilitate an integrated approach to therapeutic support.

Highly skilled staff are able to support students in a number of specialist areas including sensory integration, social learning and specific literacy development. They work within the school day and after school.

There is effective liaison with health professionals including the in-house therapeutic team, whose members advise on physical, emotional and psychological healthcare. (Ofsted)
