We are open and, in accordance with government guidelines, we are working to gradually increase the number of students who can return to school safely over the summer term.

As always, we are here to support you, if you have any queries please contact us. Best wishes, Rob Watkins, Principal

Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

As occupational therapists we understand that children have a very important job to do – they have to grow, learn, socialise and play. When a child has learning, emotional, psychological or physical difficulties, this can hinder their ability to develop and thrive resulting in them struggling with the basic activities of daily living.

At Carew Academy, the occupational therapist works with the child, parents/carers and teachers to find solutions to minimise the difficulties a child faces. We help them to get the most from school life and to become as independent as possible.

The occupational therapist completes observations and assessments in the areas of eating and drinking, self-care, dressing and undressing, hand writing, scissor skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, sensory processing and visual perceptual skills. Intervention can then be provided on an individual basis, in groups or in the classroom.

Carew Academy sources its main school therapy provision from Cognus Therapies, in partnership with the London Borough of Sutton. There are currently three Occupational Therapists attached to Carew Academy.

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
