Welcome back to the new school year 2020-21

 
From September, we can visit schools to facilitate transition arrangements and re-integration.  In order to reduce the risk of infection, visits to schools are limited and will be subject to a risk assessment.  We are offering a range of services as follows: 
 
- clear communication with you and identified families
- easy access to our specialist teachers for telephone/video  consultations
- new referrals
- annual review and TAC meetings via video conferencing
- support plans for individual pupils
- virtual visits to classrooms with parents' permission
- actual visits to school sites to conduct risk assessments around mobility and habilitation needs of pupils with physical need
- manual handling training on site
- staff training  via video conferencing
- physical resources for home learning for an identified need
- links to internet resources
- transition planning resources
- clear communication with DSLs regarding safeguarding matters.
 
From the 2nd September, please continue to get in touch with us if you have any questions.  Each team member is contactable via email (see details above).  
 
We will continue to update this information in light of the Government guidance.
 
Please keep safe and well.

What is the role of the Outreach Service?

Our aim is to improve inclusive practice and raise achievement

We are a team of experts with specialist training in the management of special needs, hearing loss, visual impairment, risk assessments, habilitation assessments and assistive technology.

 

How we work

  • Schools or settings meet with parents and make a referral to our service
  • Our team visits the school or setting and makes a detailed observation
  • We meet school staff and give advice and recommendations
  • We provide a written report
  • We also receive referrals from London hospitals
  • We work very closely with the local health professionals and the Islington SEN Department 

 

We provide advice and guidance on

  • Best classroom practice
  • Training for teachers and teaching assistants
  • Improving the classroom acoustics and visual environment
  • Differentiation of the curriculum
  • Specialist equipment
  • Risk assessments
  • Access arrangements
  • Habilitation assessments
  • Transition
  • Assistive technology support

 

How schools and settings should support sensory difficulties

  • High quality teaching should always be the starting point. A good acoustic and visual environment should be established and teachers should use strategies to support the child or young person's residual hearing and vision enabling them to access the curriculum, social information and the physical environment. Written guidance is provided to schools and settings on these.
  • For children or young people with sensory difficulties that have a minor impact on learning, language and development, teachers should follow simple guidelines to differentiate teaching or classroom approaches. Written advice is provided to schools and settings on this.
  • Sensory difficulties that have potentially significant impact on their learning, language and development, teachers should follow advice provided by their Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) and/or the Richard Cloudesley Outreach Service.
