We also have members of staff with specific qualifications relating to SEN.

Mrs Goldsmith – has Level 2 training in supporting children with Autism.

We also work with many different specialist services from our local authority and the NHS including:

  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Educational Psychology
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Communication and Autism Team
  • Counselling
  • Windermere SpLD Outreach Team
  • Hearing Impairment Team
  • Physical and Neurological Impairment Team
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service
  • Clinical Psychologists
  • Children’s Community Nurses

Your child may work with one of these services if a referral to that service is made. This may come through your GP, Paediatrician or through our school. We would seek advice from a specialist service if we feel that they could have a positive impact on your child’s progress through sharing their expertise in an area of need. This would be discussed with you and your permission sought before any referral is made.

School will be open tomorrow as usual. Please allow plenty of time for your journey to school and ensure children have appropriate footwear.
