We believe in inclusive education for children across North Dorset. We aim to support children to remain in schools in their local community wherever possible. To achieve this, Yewstock School has developed a full range of outreach support for schools across North Dorset.
We have a history of providing support to other schools and professionals. A range of expert and experienced staff can offer support, advice and guidance to professional colleagues in other schools. We have Teachers, Teaching Assistants, administration and finance staff who offer a range of skills and knowledge in SEN, inclusion, outreach, sensory support and autism spectrum conditions, to name but a few.
We use the knowledge, skills and experience of our teachers and teaching assistants to offer advice and support on a number of issues affecting children including:
Behaviour, inclusion, support for ASD, curriculum, support for physical needs, and assessment, but this is by no means exhaustive!
Staff from schools may also find it beneficial to visit our school to build on their knowledge and experience of working with children with special needs.
We belong to the Teaching Alliance of Dorset Special Schools and through this we work with the other special schools to offer a range of school support and training. Please visit the TADSS website via the link in the Community section.
The outreach service is now run on behalf of the Dorset Special Schools by TADSS at Westfield School. Please contact the team at TADSS to find more details on 01305 833518, or email TADSS@westfield.dorset.sch.uk
