Additional Support and Services

SALT

Children and young people need good speech, language, and communication skills so they can listen and understand, explain what they're thinking, make good progress with their learning, and maintain friendships.  All teachers and support staff use universal strategies like visual support, repetition, and word walls to help all children communicate and learn.  Schools use intervention programmes when children need extra support with their language and communication. Some children need support from specialist services like Speech and Language Therapy (SLT).  Here at The West Molesey Centre we have two Speech and Language Therapists called Daisy Childs and Natalie Gey van Pittius who work for Surrey County Council.  Their role is to work with the team around the student, providing advice and training to staff, demonstrating activities to class teams, monitoring students’ progress, conducting assessments, and supporting the annual review process, according to students’ Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).”

School Counsellor

As part of widening programme of support, we at the West Molesey Centre are delighted to be able counselling sessions with our School Counsellor.  Ruth Quinlan is a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).  Counselling provides a confidential space for your child to talk about their life, relationships, thoughts and worries in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. The aim of the therapy sessions is to support the unique way your child experiences the world and help them develop their social skills and coping strategies for when they are anxious or finding it difficult to process and understand their emotions. The sessions will be a mixture of talking, creative play therapy and drawing.
