Physiotherapy provides a range of packages of care which include reviews and/or treatment blocks based on each child’s needs. Our physiotherapist, Julie Knox is allocated to Clarendon Secondary via the NHS and is currently on-site one morning a week for alternate half terms.

Unfortunately, the Secondary Centre was without an Occupational Therapist from January to September 2021, during which time existing OT programmes continued to be delivered by class-based support staff. We are pleased that our new full-time OT, Jess Wilson, has now joined the team. A new full time Occupational Therapy Assistant is due to be appointed early in 2022
