Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy at Blackfriars Academy

The physiotherapy team work alongside school staff to meet each child’s individual physical needs. This can include working on balance and strength, using a standing-frame or managing a child’s posture as they grow. The physiotherapy team work closely with each child’s family and liaise with other professionals involved to ensure each child’s needs are being met.

Children with a physiotherapy requirement have a physical management plan in place which enables their individual needs to be met in school and at home. The team are able to respond to the changing needs of the children and can provide blocks of treatment when increased input is required.
