About the Inclusion Support Service (ISS)

The Inclusion Support Service is led by David Harvey.

ISS encompasses the following areas:

  • Inclusion officers for matters relating to exclusion
  • Elective Home Education

The key aim of ISS is to ensure that children have access to education.

To achieve this we work with schools, parents and other agencies to secure the best possible education outcomes for children.

For the vast majority of pupils school is appropriate. However, alternative provision is required for some pupils. This may be due to exclusion or being at risk of exclusion, medical needs or emotional vulnerability. ISS acts as broker to arrange appropriate alternative provision.

David Harvey, Inclusion Support Service Manager can commission places for secondary aged pupils at one of the seven education centres (Hampshire’s term for Pupil Referral Units). Education centres are not destinations for pupils but a short stay intervention. Only schools can refer pupils to ISS.
