Icknield Outreach Programme

Our Aim

To aid pupils with severe learning difficulties in mainstream schools to fully access both the curriculum and social and personal aspects of school life. This will be achieved through creating a personalised programme of support designed specifically to meet that pupil’s needs.


The Support We Provide

  • As part of our Outreach programme we will visit your school, observe the targeted child and create a planned programme of support consisting of regular sessions tailored to the pupil’s individual needs taught by our outreach teacher.

  • Liaise with teachers and support staff to offer advice and strategies to be used in the classroom including differentiated planning and assessment.

  • In Reach - tailored visits to Icknield to observe teaching and learning, and/or a specific teaching and learning technique.

  • Offer use of and create differentiated resources and communication aids, e.g. words and symbols, to aid the pupil in fully accessing the curriculum.

  • Provide resources for parents to use at home to ensure consistency between home and school life.

  • Open mornings and workshops for professionals to come together and discuss strategies, ideas and create resources to take away.

Why Use Outreach?

Enabling children to access all parts of the school day, both academic and social elements, is crucial to their success through school life.

Our outreach programme aims to ensure children with Severe Learning Difficulties in mainstream schools are able to do this through working with not only the child but also adults involved with the child, parents/carers, teachers and learning support assistants.
