How do we involve other agencies in meeting pupils’ needs and how do we support families?

We engage with a range of education, health and care services to support pupil’s individual needs.  At present, these include but are not exclusive to, the following agencies: Educational Psychology Service; Sensory Service for Visual or Hearing Needs; Early Years Support Team; Speech and Language Therapy; Paediatricians at the Edwin Lobo Centre; Play Therapist; Family Support Team; School Nurse; Occupational Therapy; Physiotherapy; The Jigsaw Centre; Brainbow; Specialist Teacher for Children with Down Syndrome; Chiltern Outreach Team; ASD Advisory Service.  The SENDCo can make referrals to external agencies, with parental consent, to receive additional support for a child.  The advice we receive is implemented in school by the child’s class teacher.  The class teacher or SENDCo may accompany a parent and child when attending an appointment with another professional to support families if requested.
