Outline of Contractual support service

Hillside Specialist School & College can provide support to Staff, Parents, Children and Young People to develop strategies to improve the lives and education of students with Autism. Hillside is the only community special school in Lancashire and provides education for pupils aged 3-19. We have a staff team that are skilled and experienced in supporting the development of Communication, Social Skills, Behaviour and Sensory needs.

Our experienced staff will provide support to schools through a child centred approach to achieve positive outcomes. We like to train staff on an individual basis to be able to carry on once the contract has finished. We can be contracted to provide Outreach support over a term through a minimum of two visits to observe the pupil and advise staff through a feedback report.

The initial visit, per child, will be for one hour at the beginning of the term, and a second, one hour visit will take place towards the end of the term.  

Please contact our school office (01772 782205) to request a visit or complete the
