What if my child needs expertise beyond that which the school can provide?

What if my child needs expertise beyond that which the school can provide?

Bramford and Somersham Federation works with our Local Authority, Suffolk County Council and a network of the schools that are in our local pyramid group. We also have partnership with a range of outside agencies to access further support and advice. These include:

 

·         CISS, an outreach service which provides support for children with behavioural difficulties

·         Integrated Team 0-11

·         Integrated Delivery Network (formerly CAMHS, Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services)

·         Dyslexia Outreach Service

·         Pupil Referral Units

·         Suffolk County Council Family Services

·         Sensory and Communication Advisory Teachers

·         SENDAT outreach service

·         Speech and Language Therapists (both SCC and NHS)

·         Educational Psychologists

·         School Nursing Team

·         Community Paediatrics

·         Occupational Therapists

·         Physiotherapists

 

Occasionally, it may become evident that mainstream schooling will not meet a child’s very specialised individual needs.  In this case, with the child and family at the heart of any decision, a referral may be made to a more specialist educational setting where the child’s needs can be met in a more focused and expert way.
