John Jamieson School

John Jamieson is an open and welcoming, generic, all age Special School and National Teaching School which caters for pupils with a learning difficulty

Health Partnerships

The following specialist teams are based at the John Jamieson School site and support pupils and students at partnership sites.

Physiotherapists, Occupational and Speech and Language therapists work closely with education staff to provide for pupils’ physical and educational needs. They also liaise with parents/carers to give advice about equipment and therapy programmes.

We have developed excellent relationships with the school based Health teams and work together to best meet the holistic needs of your child. Any problems concerning a pupil’s health or physical/mental well-being should be referred to the School Nurse or the pupil’s Physiotherapist, who will take appropriate action.

Nursing

A team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants are responsible for the administration of drugs, nursing interventions, the organisation of Medical Officer and Consultant Clinics. They provide support, advice and training on medical interventions to parents/carers and staff. The nursing team also supports the school in delivering and promoting health related activities.

Physiotherapy

Each Physiotherapist is responsible for a number of pupils and takes each one for timetabled sessions. The Physiotherapists run hydrotherapy sessions for identified groups of pupils throughout the week. Two of our teaching assistants have an additional role with the Physiotherapy team, in order to enhance the delivery of physiotherapy programmes.

Speech and Language Therapists

Many of our pupils benefit from Speech and Language therapy sessions, delivered either on an individual basis or in small groups. Electronic communication aids, communication books and signing are among the strategies used to improve pupils’ skills. One of our teaching assistants has an additional role with the Speech and Language team, in order to enhance the delivery of programmes.
