Make a Referral

Pupils attending our schools and services are neurodiverse and typically have a diagnosis of Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) or Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).  They may also have other associated conditions. 

Referrals usually come from Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Education, Health and Care (EHC) teams in a child’s local authority.

We are also happy to receive parent/carer requests for information and to visit schools.  To progress a placement, we must receive a Formal Consultation from the local authority who will be responsible for agreeing and funding the placement.

The referral process follows a number of stages after initial review of paperwork, including an Education, Health and Care Plan.  We will ask to assess a child, possibly in the family home or current school if appropriate. Our aim is to thoroughly assess the needs of every child referred to us so that we are able to offer the best education solution to meet their needs.
