Inclusion and Wellbeing

At Orchardside we aim to support students not only their learning needs but their social and emotional wellbeing, we do this through regular multi-agency inclusion and wellbeing meetings.

 

We have access a wide range of supportive services for students and parents including

 

  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
  • Educational Psychology Services (EPS)
  • Speech and Language Therapy Services
  • Special Educational Needs and Disabilities advice and Support Service (SENDASS)
  • The Gangs Intervention Team
  • Change and Challenge
  • Parent Support Unit
  • Social Care and Early Help Services
  • Secondary Behaviour Support Services
  • DAZU Young Carers Project
  • Parent Abuse and Reconciliation Service (PAR)
  • COMPASS Young People’s Service
  • Joint Services for Disabled Children

 

We operate a “keyworker” system in the school which allocates each student to a member of staff upon admission.  This partnership enables students to build strong relationships with key staff who can support them daily, we also use this as a central point of contact for parents.  We have a full time school based therapist who provides an immediate therapy service for individuals and groups of students who require help.
