The child's school will make a referral as they are the first point of contact for families and already have lots of information and understanding of the child. The level of support that is required is based on the child in relation to their individual needs and their stage of development. Children and young people do not need an EHCP to access this support.
Specialist provision places within mainstream schools
Whilst the majority of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities will attend their local mainstream school; for some individuals, after a period of support it may be suggested that a place in a specialist provision may be necessary.
There are a number of specialist provisions within mainstream schools who provide support for pupils with more complex needs. Pupils in provision will access the majority of their learning and school life in an inclusive mainstream environment alongside their peers. Each pupil will have an individualised learning programme according to their needs. They can also access additional resources and expertise. The amount of time they spend in the mainstream environment and how they access it will depend on their individual needs.
