If you already receive OT from the public sector we are able to supplement that, and we have experience of working successfully alongside our public sector colleagues.
How do we ensure a quality service?
⋅ We provide all our therapists with regular clinical supervision and opportunities for CPD and training in our specialist areas. Our therapists are all HCPC registered.
⋅ We constantly measure the effectiveness of the work we do through the use of SMART targets
⋅ We ask for feedback from service users, parents and schools on an annual basis to check the quality of what we are doing
⋅ You will receive a termly report and a more detailed end of year report outlining pupil progress throughout they year
What do our schools think?
At the end of each academic year we meet with each school to find out what is working well and what we can do differently. We also ask them to rate us and provide feedback for last year.
