Welcome to the Thomas Wolsey School Outreach Service

The Outreach Service was set up in 2001 to support the inclusion of pupils with physical disabilities and associated learning difficulties into mainstream schools in Suffolk.

41 Thomas Wolsey School pupils currently have dual placements with mainstream schools in Suffolk. Pupils spend some of their week in a mainstream school and the remainder of the week in the special school. This provides the best of both worlds for the pupils as they have specialist provision and the expertise of the multi professional team at Thomas Wolsey School and mainstream opportunities in their local school. All placements are bespoke and are supported by the experienced multi professional Outreach team.

Quotes from Headteachers / SENCos: (Autumn 2013)
"The support of the outreach team has been critical in making the dual placement a success. It has been really valuable for staff to have the opportunity to visit Thomas Wolsey"
(Autumn 2012)
"Very good communication between schools, fast response to questions regarding pupil and excellent resource box provided"
"It has been a pleasure working with you"
"X has been a pleasure to have in the classroom, he will tackle any task presented to him and the children have loved working with him- a real success story!"

Quotes from parents:
(Autumn 2013)
"With the strong and well planned support from the outreach team we feel she and the mainstream school has been extremely well supported and the experience for her has surpassed our expectations. The outreach team is one of the best services provided at TW"

(Autumn 2012)

"The placement school has found it difficult to cater for a child with complex needs...without the Outreach team I don’t think my son would still be at his placement school"

        We regularly run training courses to support parents, carers and school staff. The pictures above are from the neuromuscular support day we ran in November.
