The Physical Impairment / Medical Inclusion Service (PIMIS) is a team of qualified specialist teachers and a specialist peripatetic teaching assistant.
We deliver individual and statutory specialist support and advice to pupils, schools, and families including assessment of access to the curriculum. The aim of the service is to enable all pupils with physical impairments and/or medical conditions to access their educational environment alongside their peers, promoting greater understanding of individual pupil needs and helping to break down barriers promoting inclusion.
The service works collaboratively with other professionals in health and social care and colleagues in sport and recreation. Our staff support and develop the needs of the whole pupil in order to encourage social and emotional development as well as academic achievement.
