Therapy services

Southern Peninsula Services (formerly Devon Education and Children’s Services) believes therapy has an essential role in helping our young people to overcome barriers to learning and reach their potential. We have dedicated on-site therapy rooms at our school where our young people can access the following therapeutic support throughout the week:

  • Occupational Therapist (Clinical Lead)
  • Speech and Language Therapist
  • Creative Therapist
  • School Counsellor (CBT, Thrive)
  • Access to psychology services (as and when required)

For those of our pupils who have therapeutic intervention written into their EHCP, we ensure their therapeutic needs are met.

In addition, we are currently developing the way in which we understand our student’s needs more deeply through:

  • Training through the ASD strategy
  • Training with Thrive and other positive behaviour approaches
  • Links with local universities, University of St Mark and St John and University of Exeter to develop partnerships and research programmes
  • Development of the Animal strategy (to enhance self-regulation)
