11. What specialist services and expertise are available or accessed by St Mary’s Fields?
St Mary’s Fields can call on excellent advice from a range of external agencies. They give verbal feedback as well as written reports and often arrange to meet parents during the school day. If your child continues to make slower than expected progress we may ask if we can refer your child to an external specialist teacher or the educational psychologist. We will fill in special referral forms and you can describe your feelings about your child’s needs on the form. This form has to have your signature on it before the specialist teachers can visit him in school.
