Outreach Service (Fiveways School)
As a forward thinking special school, we are keen to promote inclusive opportunities for all pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) within our local area. To this end, we offer a well-established award winning outreach support service, sharing our expertise through specialist training and practitioner led support.
By working in close partnership with local mainstream schools, we aim to increase their confidence, skills and knowledge of strategies and resources to enable them to effectively support and fully include pupils with SEND within their own settings
Designed to complement and add value to local support services, our offer includes:
- targeted support to meet professional development needs;
- focussed learning visits to Fiveways School, Yeovil;
- working on bespoke support programmes with pupils and their staff in their own schools.
Our inclusion programme and outreach service also has a long and proud history of enabling pupils with SEND to access provision in both mainstream and special schools as well as participating in activities within the local community.
