Atwell College

Therapists - Therapy Agreement

Atwell College is committed to ensuring the best educational outcomes for our students. A minimum standard contract has been developed to promote a collaborative working relationship between Therapists, Parents, and the College.
In the best interests of the student's successful transition into the new school year therapy sessions will not start until week 4 of Term 1. This will also allow teachers time to prepare timetables and class routines that will best support long term and committed times for therapist to be able to visit.
