At Norwood, we have developed a wide range of education support services in response to the needs of children, young people and adults to support them in learning.
The descriptions below will introduce you to what is currently on offer. Have a browse to see if we offer what you're looking for. But if you can’t see what you want or need, please get in touch. We will do our best to meet your needs.
Here at Norwood we aim to ensure that every child we support is given the opportunity to have the best start in life. We offer a wide range of services and provision for children aged 0 - 5 years and for their parents and carers.
We want to ensure that all Jewish children, regardless of learning difficulties, are able to reach their full potential and have access to their Jewish heritage.
The Karten Centre offers a wide variety of courses in life skills for people with learning disabilities. Our courses, which include computer training and communications, combine activities in ways that make them fun and interesting in order to help learners reach their potential.
Our Occupational Therapists look at children’s ability to function and develop independently. We get involved when a child is unable to be appropriately independent in their everyday life. We work with them so that they can function at a level that is appropriate for their age and ability.
The Pears Special Resource Provision (PSRP), established with Norwood’s support, is part of JCoSS (the Jewish Community Secondary School). It offers up to seven places per year for pupils with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) to be a part of a mainstream secondary school.
Our educational psychologists work in a variety of ways, dealing with the difficulties and issues children and young people experience in education. Problems can include learning, development, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
This is the specialist support we offer to children and young people who are experiencing problems with the school curriculum. We also offer support to their parents and teachers. No matter what form these difficulties might take, we aim to provide appropriate support.
