External Specialist Support

External Agencies

Where a student with SEND is not making appropriate progress and The Academy feel that they need advice and support from external professionals, we will discuss such a need with parents. If it is felt appropriate, we will then refer a student to an external agency and/or professionals for diagnosis, support or advice.

For pupils who have SEND and are “Looked After” we work closely with social workers and the LACES Team to ensure that pupils are fully supported. Mrs L Black – SENCo is also the Designated Lead for Looked After Children. (LAC)

The school is currently working with the following teams/agencies:

  • SEND and Inclusion service (including the Sensory Support team)
  • SEND Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)
  • Virtual School for looked after children
  • Anti-bullying service
  • Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)
  • Educational Psychology Service
  • School nurse
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Speech and Language Therapist

Working collaboratively with other schools is another way that we ensure that provision for our students with SEND is effective. Staindrop Academy forms part of the Advanced Learning Partnership, this allows us to liaise regularly other secondary Academies to continue to develop outstanding SEND practice. We also work collaborative within a Community of Learning, which is comprised of local nursery, primary and secondary schools. The work of the Community of Learning is aimed at raising achievement and extending opportunities for children with SEND.
