Sensory & Physical (S&P) Service

The Sensory & Physical (S&P) Service (previously called the Sensory & Communication Service) is part of the Specialist Education Service, and incorporates the:

  • Service for Deaf Children & Young People, the
  • Service for Children with Visual and/or Multisensory Impairments, and the
  • Specialist Learning Support Assistant (SpLSA) Service

What we do

Children and young people with additional medical and/or sensory needs may struggle to access or engage with learning. We work with settings to help them better understand the needs of pupils with these additional needs and how they can be best supported, and work directly with pupils to provide them with specialist teaching and support.
