Occupational Therapy

At Bredon School we strive to support young people who have difficulties with their school occupations. Our Occupational Therapist works with pupils who have difficulties with:


School work – including fine motor skills such as handwriting, drawing, cutting out, using technology; gross motor skills and playing sport as well as keeping on task, following instructions, working with others, and managing anxiety and exams.


Life skills – for example, dressing appropriately for school, changing for sport, managing personal hygiene, eating lunch and managing belongings.


Break time and leisure time – such as joining in social activities, finding hobbies and leisure interests, making friends and socialising, or using break times to recharge for the rest of the day.

Transitions – such as moving between lessons, stopping one task and starting another, or transitioning from one educational setting to another.


Our Occupational Therapist looks at the whole person - including physical, mental health, emotional and behavioural needs and the impact on school life - and work with the young person, their parents/carers and school staff to identify strategies to promote independence.

This may include:

  • Modifying the way the task is done

  • Recommending modifications to the environment

  • Recommending or providing equipment

  • Teaching the child, young person or staff strategies/techniques

  • Developing the child or young person’s skills and abilities.
