All students are able to consult the eating support and nutrition service at the college. This is led by a Speech and Language Therapist with the specialist knowledge of supporting those with eating difficulties including dysphagia, and a dietician who has wide experience in the eating, drinking and nutritional needs of the students we support. We aim to promote the general health and well-being of students at Beaumont College. We provide a comprehensive screening, assessment and on-going support service for all students regarding nutrition, eating and drinking. In addition we advise student support staff on the management of these needs.
All of our staff are trained to support the students appropriately at meal and snack times they also support the students appropriately with respect to their overall nutritional needs. Our restaurant staff ensure that student meals are varied, offer appropriate textures, and adequate nutritional provision for individual student dietary needs. Liaison with parents, carers, and other health professionals is important to ensure our students’ needs are met. The Eating Support & Nutrition Service also work with keyworkers in supporting students who have non-oral intake.
