The Low Incidence Needs Service (LINS) supports children and young people with visual or hearing impairment, physical need and Down Syndrome.  These children are ‘low incidence’ but often have a high need.

The service provides outreach support from a range of specialist staff who ensure the needs of children and young people with low incidence needs are fully met within the daily life of their school, or learning establishment.

The purpose is that children and young people with low incidence needs:

  • make good educational progress and reduce or close any attainment gap that was existing between them and their peers on entry to school
  • are happy at school, feel included and fully participate in the life of the school
  • move successfully on to a new school, further education or work or training.

The service takes the form of a designated provision at Hurworth Primary School.  Hurworth Primary school is designated by the local authority (LA) as hosting this expertise in relation to the education of children and young people with low incidence needs.

The LINS team comprises of a

  • Teacher for Vision Impairment,
  • 1.7 fte Teachers of the Deaf (TOD)
  • 1 Hearing Impaired Family Support Worker
  • Advisory Teacher for Down Syndrome
  • Advisor for children with Physical Needs
