What we do for pupils with physical difficulties and medical needs

We offer support to children, their families and schools by liaising closely with colleagues in schools and other agencies. Our aim is to, as far as possible, enable children to lead independent lives and make their own informed decisions so they can take a full part in the life of their school. 

We may be involved on a short or long term basis depending on need.  We may work more intensively at different periods of a child’s school life, such as transition to another setting.

We offer training and advice to educational settings, including early years and out-of-school providers, to help children with a physical difficulty or medical need to have the same opportunities as others.
