What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the school?
Our SENCO can offer advice and training for a range of SEND. If further advice and support is required, Mrs Turpcu will make a referral, with parental permission, to an appropriate outside agency or service. This may include the Educational Psychology Service, Speech & Language, Autism Advisory Service or the Children’s Centre. Services like Occupational Therapy or Camhs (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) may be contacted via the School Nurse/GP. There is an extensive range of services within Hertfordshire who will only be accessed with parental permission.
