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 join our weekly virtual Drop-in Sessions. These are held every Tuesday between 3pm till school closes at 5pm. Please note there are no outreach drop-in sessions on the last week of a term. Contact A Darke to receive an invite.
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 either virtual or in person over a term to support with the changes / training.
