Prior to Referral
All medical referrals will be discussed at our weekly SLT meeting, and then if complete, at our fortnightly (during term time) Panel for Excluded and Vulnerable Pupils (PEVP). Once a referral is received we will let you know when it will be discussed.
Please also refer to the DFE statutory guidelines: Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions. Click here to view the guidelines.
- Complete the Referral form – click here for a copy.
- Gather all the relevant documents together (see below for what is considered a complete referral)
- Ask the most relevant medical professional to complete the ‘Medical Information’ form – click here for a copy.
- Submit the complete referral
The referral will initially be reviewed at our SLT meeting, and depending on the outcome will be discussed at the next PEVP meeting
Outcome and actions following the PEVP meeting will be sent to the referring school
Referrals without medical evidence will be returned. It is the referring schools responsibility to ensure that we receive the ‘Medical Information’ form.
A complete referral comprises:
- A completed MPS Referral form
- The ‘Medical Information’ form completed by the lead medical professional
- Attendance recorded print off for previous 12 months from the date of referral
- All relevant medical reports from medical professionals
- Records from consultation meetings / annual reviews
- Minutes of any multi-professional meetings
- Progress and attainment over time: include NC levels, target and predicted grades (for current and previous years).
- Annotated timetable
- Last 2 IEPs and reviews
- Last 2 PSPs and reviews
- Risk Assessment (where necessary)
- Behaviour log
It is important that the supporting ‘Medical Information’ form gives clear guidance on the number of hours of education the student can access each day and the environment in which lessons should take place.
We work only with those students who are not currently attending school provision, and who will not be able to attend school even with adaptations to timetables and support being given by the school.
Once a referral has been discussed by the Panel for Excluded and Vulnerable Pupils (PEVP) the outcome will be sent to the referring school, and the necessary arrangements for provision will be made.
