ICT Assessment Service


Welcome to the Thomas Wolsey School Outreach Service

From January the SEND Outreach to mainstream will be co-ordinated and managed by SENDAT in Bury St Edmunds. SENDAT is the new multi academy trust the Priory School have formed. SEND AT have been commissioned by the local authority to continue the outreach work including ICT assessments. Unfortunately it’s not possible to make referrals for the new service yet. It is likely that this will not be possible until January.

County ICT assessment service.
There are many reasons children struggle to acquire handwriting skills. It is one of the most complex skills we learn and teach. The County ICT assessment service offers assessment and support to children with physical access difficulties and/or difficulties with writing and reading who require specialist software and equipment to enable them to access the curriculum. The Service is available to children in school who are resident in Suffolk, or have a statement of SEN /EHC plan maintained by the County; and aims to support the child’s right to full and equal access to the curriculum. The service is currently based at Thomas Wolsey School within a purpose built suite, and has an extensive bank of resources available for use during assessment. All assessments are followed up with a detailed report making recommendations for the school to implement. Each school is offered follow up visits and training where required. The service also offers courses to mainstream school staff looking at why some children find it so difficult to learn to write, and alternatives ways of recording work and evidencing learning across the curriculum.
Manual Handling advice and training
The manual handling advisor based at Thomas Wolsey School is able to offer advice and training to schools that have pupils with physical disabilities which affect their ability to move around school independently, or transfer between pieces of equipment. Further information about manual handling support can be accessed via the resources link on the website.
