Other Professionals

The school has a range of specialised services available to pupils. Information on each service can be found below.

Occupational Therapy

My name is Wendy and I am the Occupational Therapist working at Warren School and with children with disabilities in mainstream schools. I am based at the Newberry Child Development Centre where I can be reached on 01493 442322.

I work with the children at school and can carry out home visits for children living in Waveney and Great Yarmouth PCT area.

The aim of Occupational Therapy is to increase and enable as much independence as possible in the children's lives. I therefore work with the children around their personal care, positioning, encouraging development through play, improving upper limb and fine motor function, identifying and advising around sensory difficulties.


Physiotherapy

My name is Andrea (Physiotherapist) and my role includes providing physiotherapy input at Warren School, as well as being based from the Newberry Child Development Centre seeing children from the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area.

The aim of physiotherapy is to optimise and maintain movement and function where possible to enable children to move as freely and independently as possible. I see children at school, and I can also carry out home visits when necessary. I work with children to assist their posture, movement, quality and muscle tone; maintain movement; standing and walking where appropriate, and work on balance and muscle tone.

I can be reached at the Newberry Centre on 01493 442322.
