SENDsuccess is the single Outreach Service for Waltham Forest.

Funded by Waltham Forest Local Authority, and run by the combined Joseph Clarke and Whitefield Outreach service teams, our mission is to work in partnership with mainstream schools in the borough to ensure the successful inclusion of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

This service supports pupils with visual impairment and mobility needs; hearing impairment; autism, learning and cognitive disabilities. Within the SENDsuccess team there are experienced teachers with specialist qualifications in SEND. We also have an ICT specialist and a habilitation specialist within the VI team and an audiological technician supporting deaf pupils.

What we offer

  • Individual and whole-school training for new and established staff in a range of SEND areas.
  • 1:1 support for specific sensory needs.
  • Advice and support for schools and parents.
  • Audiological equipment set-up and support for hearing impaired pupils.
  • Advice on selecting and using the appropriate technology to support visually impaired pupils.
  • Mobility support and training for visually impaired pupils from a qualified Habilitation Specialist.
