Multi-disciplinary Working

Provision by other agencies and professionals such as speech and language therapists, the educational psychologist, and a school counsellor is embedded into the life of the school. Liaison with audiology clinics and cochlear implant centres takes place annually for each individual or as required according to their audiological needs. The school works closely with Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and CAMHS where appropriate to secure the well being of pupils.

We work closely with the team of specialist advisory services from Hertfordshire  and home local authorities to ensure pupils with multi-sensory needs have access to the right equipment and provision.

Audiology Co-ordinator

The Audiology Co-ordinator has responsibility for supporting pupils audiological needs in school and for liaising with audiology clinics and cochlear implant centres. The school has excellent audiological facilities and we are able to provide full audiological assessments and provide new earmoulds.

Educational Psychologist

Knightsfield School is allocated several visits each year from a Hertfordshire educational psychologist and we host visits from other LA educational psychologists. These visits can include individual assessment of a pupil and their educational needs and provide us with specialist advice and training for staff on specific programmes for pupils. 

School Counselling Service

Knightsfield School purchases a qualified school counsellor for half a day a week. Pupils experiencing difficulties at home or at school can self refer to the school counsellor. Sessions are usually 45 minutes weekly for a minimum of a month. Information is held confidentially unless a safeguarding issue arises.
