"Working together as a dynamic team to provide the best for all learners"
Hillside has a dedicated team of Outreach Teachers who support children with additional needs in mainstream schools.
Our service operates two strands of outreach support SLD Outreach and Physical/Medical Outreach.
Pupils eligible for SLD Outreach must have an EHCP stating that they have a severe learning difficulty, this is often described as a 'global developmental delay'. This service specifically supports a large number of pupils with Down Syndrome, in close liaison with the specialist Speech and Language Therapists
Pupils eligible for Physical/Medical Outreach must be seen by at least two therapy services, speech and language, physiotherapy and occupational therapy or one of the services could be that they are under a specialist hospital service, e.g. Great Ormond Street Hospital, Evelina Children's Hospital.
