A three stage journey for young people: Stabilisation, Strengthening and Transition
Our clinical services team work as an integral part of the Spring Hill School multi-disciplinary team to support children and young people, parents and carers and other key external professionals.
Our specialist team includes:
• Locum Consultant Psychologist helping children and young people understand and manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Our Psychologist also supports staff to effectively support and understand presenting needs of our children and young people.
• Locum Occupational Therapist (OT) helping young people improve their ability to perform tasks independently in their daily living and school environments; OTs support students to access their education through the development of fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing and self-regulation skills
• Speech and Language Therapist helping people develop communication, language and interaction skills. In addition, speech and language therapists can provide assessment, advice, recommendations and direct support for eating and drinking skills
• Mental Health Support Worker providing care and support to children and young people in times of dysregulation and crisis
[Staff] receive training from the clinical team in how to support pupils with Autism in the classroom. This training helps staff to make sure that the curriculum is finely tuned to meet the individual needs of pupils.

Therapeutically informed practice is a Golden Thread at Spring Hill; this is driven through a therapeutic framework which is known as the STEP framework. This enables colleagues, across clinical, education and care teams, to have a shared approach to supporting young people by way of a consistent and agreed approach. This framework supports all staff at Spring Hill School to work collaboratively to monitor progress and support the achievement of positive outcomes for children and young people.
