Our outreach service supports pupils to maintain their mainstream placement by; implementing strategies, training staff, modelling resources and discussing teaching approaches.
The first step to receiving outreach support is for staff working with the pupil to attend our weekly Drop-in Sessions. These are held every Tuesday between 3pm till school closes at 5pm (the last session this term is: Tuesday 10 July and starts again on Tuesday 11 September 2018).
This is an opportunity to discuss your concerns, take away strategies to try, complete an initial referral form and if necessary arrange a date & time for the outreach manager; Amanda Darke to come and observe the pupil in your setting and give feedback.
Outreach can be a single visit with feedback however more often than not it will consist of several visits over a term to support with the changes / training.
