The PLSA service was created in the early 1990’s to provide peripatetic support to pupils on a one-to-one basis, from 5 to 16 years of age in mainstream schools, who have a physical disability or visual impairment. These pupils will have a statement of special educational needs. Clarendon School were responsible for the management of the team from April 2011 until July 2017.
