Primary Learning Support Service (Camden Council)

(PLSS. Also known as Robson House)

The Primary Learning Support Service (PLSS) provides specialist help for primary school age children with emotional, social, language, communication and mental health difficulties. PLSS helps children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), their parents and carers, and staff working with them. PLSS is made up of the Primary SEBD Service and Camden Language and Communication Service. We provide assessments and specialist help for children with emotional, social, language, communication and mental health difficulties. The Camden Language and Communication Service (CLCS) provides specialist teachers and speech and language therapists to support children with language and communication difficulties, including disorders such as specific language impairment and autism. It provides direct work with children, training to school staff, and help setting up programmes such as language groups and social skills groups. It also provides training and support to parents and carers and the wider children's workforce. PLSS includes Robson House (Camden's Primary Pupil Referral Unit). This is a specialist therapeutic and educational placement for children who cannot attend mainstream school because of social, emotional and mental health needs, or who have been permanently excluded from school. Robson House provides integrated support for children and their families from a team which includes teachers, psychologists, and therapists. Robson House Outreach provides support to children and staff in Camden’s mainstream primary schools.
