About us

The team has the expertise and experience to provide support to pupils/students with a variety of complex learning, physical and emotional, behavioural needs across primary and secondary schools. Whilst individual team members have particular skills and strengths, staff are able to work across the age range of mainstream schools.

Each team member retains a working knowledge of their specialism by spending an agreed weekly period of time in a host special school.
