Sensory Support Service

Current Provision – September 2020

As schools re-opened for all pupils, the Sensory Support Service is adopting a blended model with both face to face and remote support being provided to families and educational settings. As much as possible support will be provided remotely but face to face support will be provided in the following situations:

  • When provision stated in Education Health and Care Plans cannot be provided remotely
  • Assessments including statutory assessments
  • Specific essential interventions that cannot be provided remotely

In case of school closures, local lockdowns or if staff need to self-isolate remote support will be provided.

Service members will check with each setting their COVID procedures before they visit, use PPE appropriate for the activities carried out and adhere to strict hygiene procedures.

We will aim to visit one setting per day, where this is not possible we will inform the setting or family of this and of any additional precautions that need to be taken.

We continue providing cerebral vision impairment training and also online training for teaching assistants.
