Recent feedback from schools

Colnbrook Outreach are quick to respond to referrals. They talk through the learning profile of the child and then take part in observations of the child. This means that the staff are better placed to offer advice; many other services simply talk the child through which does not always afford the same great impact.

Colnbrook Outreach is without a doubt one of the most beneficial services, to teachers, support staff and children, currently available within the area. Colnbrook Outreach service supports some of our most vulnerable children to reach their potential in mainstream settings.  

I have attended various courses, training and meetings at Colnbrook (and online) and always find the staff to be friendly, welcoming and supportive. Together with this they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share as well as practical strategies and advice
