About Outreach

The Outreach service was created in 1999 to support pupils with autism included in mainstream schools maintained by Surrey LEA.

The outreach service is a team of AUTISM SPECIALISTS from Linden Bridge, Freemantle's, The Abbey and Limpsfield Grange Schools.


The Outreach service offers:

Pupil Support

We support pupils with a diagnosis of an Autism in mainstream schools, we will also support children who are waiting for a diagnosis. Support in schools usually begins with one of the specialists observing a child in the class. We can offer support with a variety of issues such as:

  • Including the child more fully into the class
  • Exploring ways in which the curriculum and work can be adapted
  • Understanding communication, sensory and behaviour difficulties
  • Developing the pupil's and other pupils’ understanding of ASD
  • Supporting pupils through the process of school transition

New Referrals and Contact

Class teachers, SENCOs, Educational Psychologists and GP’s, can all make referrals for any pupil who has a diagnosis of an Autism or is awaiting their diagnosis or who have Social Communication differences. .

We can be contacted by e-mail on:

Or complete the referral form above.

Old forms sent via email or Egress to Outreach will no longer be accepted. The new online forms will be emailed straight to us once submitted.

The link for the New Referral Form is above and the SLA and RA documents below.

One of the Outreach Team will contact you as soon as all relevant documents have been received and reviewed and one of the team has a date to offer you to come and visit the pupil/s.

Below are some highlights from the forms:-

Covid 19: Risk of transmission

  • Schools to contact the outreach team as soon as possible if COVID cases are confirmed in their setting, so that the visit can be postponed or moved online.
  • Outreach workers will ensure the front office has their email for test and trace purposes

Covid-19: Risk of transmission from lack of social distancing

  • Where meetings do take place, school staff must ensure the meeting space is adequately large to facilitate social distancing.
