What schools can be expected to do to support their pupils

A "continuum" to use as a check list for ensuring that a school has put in place "best endeavours" and "reasonable adjustments" before making a referral to an Inclusion Forum or Partnership Meeting

Advice to Schools - improve your SEND practices and reduce the need to refer.

The "continuum" lists the provisions schools might make to support individual leaners.  Here is advice about the way SENDCO's and their teams might implement these provisions effectively across their school.  The Check List is a summary of the elements of good SEND practice that Co-ordinators can use as "crib sheet" to ensure that schools are not referring students without having made their own best efforts internally to meet need.
