As well as delivering the best possible education, we have access to clinical support to provide care and therapy to benefit the children and young people in our school.
Within Dumfries and Galloway we have access to:
- Looked After Children’s Specialist
- Health and Wellbeing Service
This allows partnership working to support our young people under all their health needs.
For day education services we work closely with partnership agencies including Speech and Language Therapists. Where we have an identified need unmet within a young person’s plan, we are able to pull from wide-ranging supports from Outcomes First Group clinical team.
Our clinical team includes:
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- Trained Counsellors
- Educational Psychologists
- Access to other types of therapy as required
The team work with each student, as well as their parents or carers, to agree a support plan which will become part of their school life, enabling them to build on their strengths and increase their resilience.
We aim to provide our students with a safe, caring and nurturing community with clear, consistent boundaries and high expectations. Relationships are at the heart of our approach and are based on sensitive understanding of a young person’s experiences and the areas in which they require more support.
Behaviour is understood as a form of communication and all staff work together to enable the healthy physical, social, and emotional development of each student.For more information, contact us
