Each child has a 1:1 keyworker appointed with a particular pupil in mind. Keyworkers front a lot of the day to day activities the child will be involved in and as members of the team as a whole have joint responsibility for the planning and execution of the appropriate, individualised and multi-disciplinary programmes of work for the children.
