SEND Local Offer

3. What do specialist services do to support the progress and well-being of children with SEND?

Teaching and support staff work closely with relevant members of specialist services which provide support for our school. The services which are working in our school this year include:

  • Educational Psychologists*
  • PLSS (Robson House)
  • The Camden Hearing Impaired service*
  • The Camden Visually Impaired service*
  • Occupational Therapists*
  • Camden Language and Communication Service*
  • Camden Physical Disability (PD) Outreach Service*
  • Camden Education Welfare Service*
  • The CAMHS Team
  • MOSAIC – supporting children with complex needs*
  • Social Services*
  • Health visitor/school nurse*

The glossary at the end of this document explains what each of these teams does.

These services provide a range of support including:

  • working one to one and with small group work with children
  • providing training for teaching and support staff
  • helping us to assess needs and plan next steps and review progress

Each service has referral and eligibility criteria* – this means that service support is targeted on children with higher levels of need. More information about these services can be found on Camden’s Local Offer website http://www.localoffer.camden.gov.uk/.

We will always involve you in any decisions about whether your child has a special educational need and the best ways to provide support. If your child requires these services we will involve you in the process at every stage. We will ask you to sign a referral form before the support can go ahead.
