Paediatric Therapy Services

What do we offer?

We provide advice, support, programmes and training for staff, in the delivery of individual therapy programmes for pupils with identified therapy needs, which help to limit the impact of their disability and promote independence. This includes pupils with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and/or sensory processing problems.

We are able to problem solve with staff and work out how the therapy programmes can be integrated into the pupil’s curriculum, to minimise the impact on their school or college day. We can advise and prescribe equipment required to meet pupil’s needs in school or college. 

Why choose us?

We are a combined team of qualified Paediatric Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists, supported by experienced Therapy Assistants. The qualified therapists are registered and regulated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and undertake regular post-qualification training and development. They are committed to providing evidence based practice.

We know your children, through providing core physiotherapy and occupational therapy services from birth to 16yrs across Swindon. We have excellent links with our hospital based health colleagues in addition to our integrated working within Swindon’s Children Services.

What is provided free?

The services to mainstream pre-school and school aged children for all Swindon schools and academies (to the end of Year 11) are provided free of charge.

What is chargeable?

Supplementary services are chargeable to schools, academies and colleges, where the school, academy or college recognizes additional therapy services will support pupils with integration within the setting, access to the curriculum or to meet specific sensory needs. These services can be arranged specifically with your setting; please contact us directly before you order, to organize your specific service requests.

All the SLT services support to Swindon special schools and SRP’s are chargeable and are subsidized by your NHS funding for children with a Swindon GP.

There is a charge for sixth forms for all schools and academies, and colleges for both mainstream and SEN based work.

How the service can be provided/length of agreement

This service will be delivered between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021.

Please contact the service manager to discuss and agree the best option for your school before ordering. This will ensure we provide the most appropriate solution for your pupils.
