Introduction to Outreach Support

The Shepwell Short Stay School and Home and Hospital Tuition Service also provides OUTREACH support for KS3/4 pupils attending Walsall mainstream schools.  We provide specialist care for young people experiencing levels of anxiety, autism or social vulnerability.   Working alongside and within mainstream schools across Walsall, we have skilled staff with excellent knowledge and expertise who provide a personalised programme to assist individuals to overcome some of the challenges they face on a daily basis, in their learning environment and at home. Our ultimate aim is to build healthy and happy young people.
