Physiotherapy is provided for students with a physical disability attending the school. A registered physiotherapist sees funded students who are based in the physically disabled unit and mainstream classrooms.
Physiotherapy is vital for the well-being of many children, providing them with opportunities to move around their environment, develop strength and fitness, maintain and progress to higher levels of function, and also to help social and academic development.
Opportunities for students with physical disabilities include:
- 1:1 assessment and treatment sessions
- Group activities, according to the child’s need
- Aquatic physiotherapy
- Modified physical education programmes
Our aim is to support children and their families, and provide appropriate ways to help children with disabilities develop at home and school.
