Physiotherapist’s work with children to optimise and maintain movement and function. This could include the use of equipment, to promote independent movement, positioning advice and
recommending a range of physical activities to support the child to develop their gross motor skills.
Physiotherapist’s often work within a classroom setting, to incorporate strategies and activities into their school day alongside peers. Physiotherapists complete training with school staff on a regular basis to ensure equipment is used safely and knowledge on topics such as postural management isdeveloped.
Physiotherapists will see children at school, with or without parent/carer present (with your
consent). If required, home visits may also be arranged, to see how your child is managing at home and order any equipment necessary, to assist with your child’s 24-hour management.
The Physiotherapy team currently has 3 qualified therapists and 3 technicians, who work in
Riverwalk across the school week and can be contacted via school or by calling 01284 741786.
