The Sensory Support Service is a team of specialist teachers and support staff who are committed to working with children and young people with hearing and vision needs, and their families, to provide a comprehensive teaching, educational, advisory and audiological support service.
Working from birth through to leaving school, the service works seamlessly with families and professional colleagues from a range of disciplines. We aim to ensure that children and young people with sensory impairments enjoy the same rights and opportunities as their peers, and that all barriers to maximising potential are overcome.
"All children have the right to the best possible start in life. Where children have special needs and disabilities, it is important that these are identified at an early stage and that identification leads directly to effective early intervention and support for families and children." (Together from The Start - Practical guidance for professionals working with disabled children (0-2) and their families, DfES, 2002)
