Referral Process

Schools and settings have the prime responsibility for ensuring pupils with sensory difficulties achieve outcomes in line with their peers and become independent learners. The role of the Richard Cloudesley Outreach Service is to build capacity in schools so that staff can provide personalised learning opportunities and pupils can be included in the school community.

This service supports children who are in Islington schools & settings. The service provides advice to schools and settings to ensure children with sensory difficulties make progress in line with their peers and become independent learners.



The service uses the agreed National Sensory Impairment Partnership (NatSIP) Eligibility Framework and professional knowledge to decide on the level of support for each child or young person with a hearing or visual impairment. This level of support is reviewed and adjusted regularly. There is a seperate eligibilty framework for habilitation, used by Theo Skerrit, the Outreach Habilitation Specialist. See below for downloads of the eligibility PDFs.
