Specialist Intervention Team (SIT)

At Pencalenick we offer our learners access to additional support from the Specialist Intervention Therapy Team (SITT).

The team aims to:

  • Provide early identification of a child/young person’s needs and offer early therapeutic intervention. This intervention is personalised, highly specialised and integrated support that delivers positive outcomes for children/young people.


Further develop an equitable offer enabling fair access to therapeutic services which is delivered based on identified need. The SITT approach is child centred and holistic, with a clear focus on the input of children/young people and their families as part of the therapeutic programme; providing families with specialist information, advice and support.


  • Develop a sustainable, multi-disciplinary, specialist intervention resource working innovatively in schools, across the Trust, with multi-agency partners across Cornwall and Devon.

  • Develop professional career pathways, supported by expertise that support the Trust's recruitment, retention and reward strategies. Developing and retaining highly skilled staff ensuring that the Trust is able to meet the needs of all children and young people in Trust provision and across Cornwall and Devon.
