We are passionate about working in partnership with you to improve the lifechances of some of our most vulnerable young people.  For schools it is very confusing sometimes knowing what support is out there and how it all fits together.

If a young person is permanently excluded then this is dealt with by the statutory Panel for Excluded and Vulnerable Pupils PEVP. Referrals for pupils with medical needs are also discussed there. 

If a school needs support in dealing with a young person with challenging behaviour or SEMH needs then a referral to our Partnership Board is the place to go.

How we work with you

It may be that you have a very clear idea of the support you need from us or provision you require for a pupil – and when you make the referral please give us that information.  However, after discussion we may be able to agree something different, or we may decide a more varied timetable may be more effective.

Depending on what provision is agreed, and what is agreed about how we are going to work together, we will draw up a Partnership Agreement to be agreed and signed by both parties.  This sets out the key people involved, the objectives, the timetable, any costs involved and enables us to agree and set the expectations.
