The nature of the special educational needs of the pupils in Saltersgate means that it is essential that the school works in partnership with a wide range of other professionals as well, of course, with parents.

 

The partners include educational psychologists, social work staff, a range of medical staff, including doctors, nurses, dental staff, therapists, psychiatric staff, careers advisor, transition support worker and college staff.  Therapists include speech and language therapist, physiotherapist and occupational therapist. The school also works closely with health staff from the Community Learning and Disability Nursing Team (CLDN) and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

 

Many of these professionals make home visits and attend meetings in school with parents when necessary.
