Sensory Support Service

The Sensory Support Service is a team of specialist teachers providing highly specialist support for children with hearing or vision dificulties

It is our conviction that all hearing impaired/visually impaired pupils should have access to appropriately qualified staff, to audiological/vision aids and ICT equipment.

Sensory Support Service

What do we do?

Where do we do it?

How do we do it?


"All children have the right to the best possible start in life. Where children have special needs and disabilities, it is important that these are identified at an early stage and that identification leads directly to effective early intervention and support for families and children." Together from the Start (2008)

In line with Board's Mission and Vision Statements, the Sensory Support Service has a clear commitment to the policy of inclusion. Our mission and vision statements are therefore as follows :

Our mission is to have a high quality, specialised Service which seeks to enable children and young people with a sensory impairment to be independent, to have high self esteem and to be successfully included within the community.

Our vision is to identify and assess all hearing or visually impaired children and to promote their optimum development in order to maximise their potential. Wherever possible, all pupils should have their needs met within a mainstream school and we aim to achieve this by working effectively with families, pupils and schools.
