Professional Support


School Nurse

We have a school nurse on site who visits each class regularly. She provides training and advice to staff to ensure children's medical needs are met. Our school nurse is available to visit the children if they are feeling unwell and also provide telephone advice to the class team. Her role also includes safeguarding and health promotion.

Speech and Language Therapy (SLT)

We have a speech and language therapist that works with children across Rodney House School. She works alongside our Communication Lead to support the development of children's communication skills. Parent workshops and training for staff are delivered across the school year. 

Occupational Therapy (OT)

Our occupational therapist works with children who display sensory difficulties which can impact upon their day to day activities and behaviour. They support the class team to find and plan for children's optimum level of arousal. This can assist them to cope better with sensory stressors, enhance engagement, attention and communication and increasing potential for learning. 

Music Therapy

We offer music therapy at Rodney House. Music therapy develops children's communication, listening and concentration skills. It also helps to develop physical, sensory and cognitive skills as they interact with instruments and sounds. Ultimately, the purpose of music therapy is to make contact and connections with individuals who may find communication difficult.
