Maple Ridge is one of a number of Hampshire Schools accredited by the Local Education Authority (LEA) to provide an Outreach service to mainstream schools.
This includes providing advice to mainstream schools in relation to the inclusion of individual pupils with Autism and social communication difficulties, as well as support for pupils with learning needs. Mainstream Primary Schools for whom we are the closest appropriate Outreach provider can access support for individual children through a consultation process. The details of how schools can access advice for individual pupils is outlined in the ‘Maple Ridge Outreach Pre-Referral Criteria and SLA’ document.
We regularly run a variety of training sessions, including a monthly Problem Solving and Resource Making session, please email to request the most up to date list of training sessions currently available, as well as information about costings for courses and who the sessions are suitable for. All bookings for courses need to be made by completing the ‘Maple Ridge Outreach Training Booking Form’, once this has been received and processed, a booking confirmation letter will be issued.
School’s within the Maple Ridge Outreach area can also join a three year Service Level Agreement to the Outreach Plus service, which will provide an additional bespoke support package. This service enhances the Outreach support available for individual pupils to target whole school development. Further information is outlined in the ‘Outreach Plus Flyer’.
Bespoke support and training packages can be agreed, some further information is outlined in the document ‘Maple Ridge Training and Workshops’.
Our TOP (Thomas Outreach Programme) worker provides early intervention for young children with ASD/social communication difficulties and runs our Open Door sessions; a parent/child support group for pre-school children in collaboration with the Basingstoke Portage Service which is accessible by invitation. Further information is outlined in the ‘TOP leaflet’.
