Ladywood Outreach Service is part of a provision facilitated by Ladywood School and provides a service to all schools in the Local Authority, both Primary and Secondary and in addition to private and voluntary Nursery settings.
Through the Outreach Service we are able to share the knowledge and expertise that we have developed in supporting colleagues in mainstream schools to enable pupils to access the curriculum through a variety of learning styles and strategies.
Ladywood Outreach Service has been developed to support the inclusion of pupils with a complexity of learning and communication difficulties, in addition to the full range of Autistic Spectrum Disorders in mainstream schools.
Our Outreach Team currently consists of 28 staff including teachers, teaching assistants and administration staff all of whom reflects the multi-disciplinary and collaborative nature of our outreach support. Our highly specialist teachers and teaching assistants are skilled and experienced in the specific approaches related to the children with whom we work.
We are committed to ensuring that our outreach staff also have day to day teaching experience within a school settings.
Our outreach team receives on going professional development to update skills both within our own areas of expertise and in providing outreach support to our mainstream colleagues.
The outreach team primarily dedicates time to the core business of support to our clusters of schools. Other elements of outreach works include inclusion projects, training, social skills groups, transition and much more. We offer our mainstream colleagues both teachers and teaching assistants, the opportunity to visit Ladywood for further advice and support.
