1. Sensory Consortium Service

The Berkshire Sensory Consortium Service is a specialist education support service for children and young people (CYP) 0-25 years who have a diagnosed hearing loss, vision impairment or multi-sensory impairment.

The Service aims to provide the best outcomes for CYP through their work with families, schools, colleges, early years settings and specialist teaching from qualified teaching and support staff in order to achieve ‘Good Outcomes Positive Futures.’ The Service works closely with our Local Authority partners, Health professionals and other agencies from the point of diagnosis to transition in to adulthood.

We are a joint arrangement between all Local Authorities in Berkshire:

  • Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (host authority).
  • Bracknell Forest.
  • Reading.
  • Slough.
  • West Berkshire.
  • Wokingham.

Directly purchased input can also be agreed for pupils who attend colleges and non Local Authority schools where this is not part of provision within an Education Health and Care Plan.
