Our practice was formed with a simple aim: to provide schools, parents and children with the opportunity for immediate therapy at a time and place convenient for all; no waiting lists; direct access to a dedicated and reliable therapist; and most importantly, enough time for every child.
Our way of achieving this was to provide a flexible in-school service working with the staff, parents and other health-care professionals to give children the best support we could as a team.
Our team shares the passionate belief that every individual has the right and need to communicate. We put every child we see at the centre of our work and make their progress our main focus.
We have grown into a thriving practice and are lucky enough to work with a rich variety of people from almost every kind of school - primary and secondary, maintained and independent, mainstream and special schools alike, with the children we see ranging in ability and from 3 to 18 years of age.

If you want to make a real difference and are passionate about working with children to offer them the best start in life, we want to hear from you!
After reviewing your application form, we will arrange an interview to get to know you better and ask you, amongst other things, to present a case study on a child you have worked with. Interviews will take place during the school holidays in August.
The second stage of the process would be for you to spend half a day in one of our schools with one of our therapists, who will observe you carrying out an assessment and working with our clients.
Finally, we may ask you to meet other members of our team if possible.
Our final decision will be made by the end of August 2018, with successful candidates joining the team in September or October 2018.
We wish you the very best of luck and very much look forward to receiving your application.
