If you are moving to Hampshire the County SEN team will refer your child to the service. We will contact and share information with the Specialist Teacher Advisory Service in the area you moved from.
support children and young people, aged 2 to 25, with a recognised physical disability, and/or a complex medical condition. They must attend colleges, mainstream schools or early-years settings whose:
- primary need is physical disabilities which significantly affects their functioning in school
- access to buildings and/or the curriculum is significantly impacted by their physical disability and is ‘additional to or different from’ usual school provision
support children attending special schools, except when transitioning to or from a mainstream school.
If your child or you support a child or young person who meets our criteria you can refer them to us.
If we confirm your child meets our criteria we will write to you to request you consent to us seeing your child and to share medical information. If we don't receive your consent we can't proceed with supporting your child.
When we have received consent we find out information about the child or young person's needs. We talk to their family, educational setting and health professionals. This will be assessed against our criteria and inform the level of our involvement.
We will contact parents to explain the outcome.
