About the Inclusion Support Service (ISS)

The Inclusion Support Service is led by Jonathan Willcocks.

ISS encompasses the following areas:

  • Attendance, including the Legal Intervention Team (LIT)
  • Children Missing in Education (CME)
  • Elective Home Education (EHE)
  • Exclusion from School
  • Reduced Hours Provision (RHP)

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.

Jonathan Willcocks, 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 destinations but a short stay intervention. Only schools can refer pupils to ISS.
