An integral part of the timetable
Our health provision allows nursing and therapy to be integral to every child and young adult’s timetable. This ensures that students get the most out of every single day spent with us. Here at Seashell, we have a range of exceptional professionals located on-site to provide your loved ones with the best respite care for children possible.
This includes therapists trained in learning disability therapy, speech and language therapy, nursing staff who specialise in therapy for SEND and learning disabilities, and support specialists. They work in partnership with both education and residential care staff to create strategies, targets and individual programmes that enable students to access learning opportunities across all settings.
