Clinics at school

At Glyne Gap we work closely with other professionals and parents in order to have a joined up approach to the overall well-being of pupils.  We have a series of regular clinics that are held in school with a multi-disciplinary team, parents and pupils. As many of our pupils have a number of appointments to attend the absence time from school is reduced by having some clinics held on site. The list of in-school clinics and the frequency with which they occur is listed below, along with the professionals involved. The on-site clinics also mean that if a member of a pupil's class team can also be present if necessary.

Combined Paediatric Clinic - 2 times/year (paediatric consultant, physiotherapist, paediatric children's nurse)

Nutrition Clinic - 6 times/year (paediatric dietician, paediatric children's nurse, master practitioner)

Chailey Outreach Posture Clinic - 3 times/year (physiotherapist, occupational therapist, rehabilitation engineer, master practitioner)

Rehabilitation engineering service - 3 days 4 times/year (rehabilitation engineers x 2 and master practitioner)
