The physiotherapy team comprises qualified staff and physiotherapy assistants specialising in children’s physiotherapy. When pupils start at Bedelsford their physical needs are assessed by a physiotherapist and following this an appropriate individualised physiotherapy programme will be set up if required. This will be integrated into their daily routine at school and will be carried out by the physiotherapy team or classroom staff. Physiotherapy may be on a 1:1 basis or as part of a group. Some children have the opportunity for aquatic therapy in the hydrotherapy pool as appropriate.
