Specialists & Therapists
At Rosehill School all staff are committed to providing high quality education for every pupil. We recognise that this will usually be best achieved when school staff work closely with parents/carers, other professionals and all who are responsible for the care of the children who attend the school. Each profession has specific roles and responsibilities and works under different systems. Education is no different except that all children go to school, therefore, we often become a focal point for other professionals who may be involved in some way with individual children and, if cooperation is to be effective, it requires careful coordination and management. We believe cooperation is best achieved when respective tasks are clearly defined, roles and responsibilities are understood and the perceived requirements of individual professionals, pupils, parents and the school as a whole are correctly balanced. The main support services the school receives are:
- School Paediatrician (fortnightly clinic)
- Occupational Therapy (2 days p/w)
- Speech and Language Therapy (1-2 day p/w)
- Continence Clinics (1 day per half term)
- Educational Psychology (by arrangement with external teams)
Our Senior Leadership Team and teachers work with parents and carers in order to establish when the involvement of a specialist is necessary. Staff within the school are more than happy to discuss how this involvement works as not all pupils will be immediately referred to these services.
