Fiveways School Outreach Service

National Award winning outreach and inclusion

As a forward thinking special school, we are keen to promote inclusive opportunities for all pupils within the South Somerset Area with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). In partnership with Fairmead School and the South Somerset Partnership School, we offer a well-established outreach support service, sharing our expertise through specialist training and practitioner led support.

By working in close partnership with local mainstream schools, we aim to increase their confidence, skills and knowledge of strategies and resources to enable them to effectively support and fully include pupils with SEND within their own settings

Designed to complement and add value to local support services, our offer includes:

  • targeted support to meet professional development needs;
  • focussed learning visits to Fiveways School;
  • working on bespoke support programmes with pupils and their staff in their own schools.

Our inclusion programme and outreach service also has a long and proud history of enabling pupils with SEND to access provision in both mainstream and special schools as well as participating in activities within the local community.
