Covid-19 Outreach update:
In light of the current school closures outreach support through observation has been suspended at this time. Phone consultations for existing outreach pupils are available, please contact : email@example.com to set up an appointment. Schools that had outreach observations booked during the school closures are asked to contact Amanda in September 2020 by e-mail to rearrange these. For new schools, we are hoping to resume in the new academic year, please check on the website for future updates.
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. Please note there are no outreach drop-in sessions on the last week of a term.
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.
