Additional Support and Services


Children and young people need good speech, language, and communication skills to 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 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 (SALT).  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 each student's Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

School Counsellor

As part of a widening programme of support, we are delighted to be able to offer counselling sessions with our School Counsellor, Ruth Quinlan (a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). 

Counselling provides a confidential space for students to talk about their life, relationships, thoughts and worries in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. The aim of counselling is to support the unique way each young person experiences the world, helping to develop social skills and coping strategies for when they are anxious or finding it difficult to process and understand their emotions.

Counselling sessions will generally include a mixture of talking, creative play therapy and drawing.
