What do specialist services do to support the progress and wellbeing of children with SEND?

Teaching and support staff work closely with relevant members of specialist services which provide support for our school. The services which are working in our school this year include:

  • Educational Psychologists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • The CAMHS Team
  • Social Services
  • Health visitors/school nurse
  • Speech and Language
  • Support for the hearing impaired
  • Autism Outreach


These services provide a range of support including:

  • working one to one and with small group work with children;
  • providing training for teaching and support staff;
  • helping us to assess needs and plan next steps and review progress.

Each service has referral and eligibility criteria. This means that service support is targeted on children with higher levels of need. More information about these services can be found on Derbyshire's Local Offer website.

We will always involve parents/carers in any decisions about whether their child has a special educational need and the best ways to provide support. If a child requires these services, we will involve parents/carers in the process at every stage. We ask them to sign a referral form before the support can go ahead.
