How our school health teams work together

The School Health Service works in partnership with parents, children and young people to make sure pupil’s health needs are supported within their school and community. This includes all those attending a state school within East Sussex and children and young people who are electively home educated. We can support you and your child with their physical and emotional needs from the age of five until they are 19 years old.

How our therapists work together

We are occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and therapy assistants. We provide personalised support for children and young people so they can overcome or adapt to physical or communication difficulties that affect daily life. Children achieve the best outcomes when we include therapy strategies into daily routines, so we work closely with parents and carers, education and health professionals to achieve this.
