We understand that some children may require extra support to achieve their potential. We use a model known as the GIRFEC Pathway, which is used across Inverclyde, to support children and young people.
If we observe that a child requires additional support, in any aspect of their learning and development, we will discuss these with parents and work together to develop strategies to try to support the child. It is important to remember that all children are individual and learn and develop at their own pace.
To ensure that we are fully supporting a child’s needs we may seek support from partner agencies. We aim to be open and transparent with parents/carers and will discuss any concerns before seeking support from another professional.
We would encourage parents to speak with a member of staff if they have any questions or concerns about their child’s progress.
The agencies we work with include:
- Speech and Language Therapist
- Early Years Outreach Team
- Health Visitors
- Educational Psychologist
- Occupational Therapist
