How We Teach : Multi-disciplinary Team
Bradstow School delivers therapeutic programmes through a multi-disciplinary approach. The multi-disciplinary team includes a range of professionals (teacher, support staff, home manager, speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, nurse and integrated therapy support team). The child’s parent/ carers are seen as an essential and integral member of this team.
Each member of this team has a valuable contribution to make in the identification aspirational outcomes for our learners, as well as the delivery of these across all areas of the curriculum and learning opportunities within our ’24 hour curriculum’.
Every young person is assessed by our therapy team and a range of approaches and teaching is delivered to ensure that a person centred and holistic programme is tailored to each individual needs. We recognise that every one of our learners is different and as such a range of different approaches and teaching are used to best meet their needs.

CAMHS are a specialist NHS mental health service for children and young people. They have specialist consultants and are able to offer assessments, diagnosis, treatment plans and support for young people who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions, behaviour or mental health.
