“School leaders and managers demonstrate inclusive values and attitudes. Expectations for all children are high…inclusive values influence how the school plans for future improvement and how it runs day to day.”

The Occupational Therapy (OT) service for children and young people in Camden works with children, families and schools to promote health and well-being through engaging in meaningful activities and occupations to promote independence and participation in all areas of everyday life.
Occupation and participation for children and young people may include self-care (for example: getting ready to go out; eating a meal; using the toilet), being actively involved and productive at school (for example: in the classroom with school work; playing; and PE lessons), and leisure (for example: playing with friends; socialising with friends; doing hobbies or sports).
