We also work closely with NHS Physiotherapists at The Russett School to ensure that the needs of all pupils who require physiotherapy are being met. A Physiotherapist is a health professional who works to help pupils who have physical or mobility needs. Physiotherapists support pupils with problems that affect muscles, bones, the heart, circulation or lungs. They are trained to evaluate and improve movement and function of the body, with particular attention to physical mobility, balance, posture, fatigue, and pain. For pupils on their caseload, a physiotherapist may sometimes deliver physical therapies or exercise programmes or advise on the use of a variety of mobility aids and adaptive equipment. Our staff ensure that any physiotherapy care plans are integrated within the classroom, to ensure continuity of care and maximum impact for our pupils.
