What is Outreach?
The Southampton Advisory Outreach Service provides support to schools across Southampton in relation to inclusion and is led and managed by Springwell School.
The team has the expertise and experience to provide support to pupils/students with a variety of complex learning, physical and emotional, behavioural needs across primary and secondary schools.
They aim to develop inclusive educational practices to maximise pupils’ potential and improve pupils’ outcomes, achievements and educational achievement.
They work in partnership with mainstream schools and alternative education provision to develop staff and the school's capacity to be able to include pupils with a variety of complex learning, physical and emotional, behavioural needs in whole school life and give them access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
For specific behavioural support, what does the service offer?
Vermont School also provides in-reach for staff from schools to shadow the practices of Vermont staff and support professional development. This can be accessed through the Outreach Service, and also directly through the school by emailing the head or the deputy on head@/firstname.lastname@example.org
If you feel your mainstream child would benefit from support from Outreach support, please speak to your child's class teacher and the SENCO of the school. They will be able to advise you.
