WANDSWORTH BEHAVIOUR & LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICE Referring a pupil to the B&LSS A school is concerned about a pupil The school has a telephone conversation with the B&LSS and requests a Referral Form. The pupil is referred via a B&LSS Referral Form (even if an Early Help Assessment Form has been completed through EHIT). A member of the B&LSS Team observes the pupil in school The pupil is presented at the monthly B&LSS Referral Panel and a decision is made as to the type of support the pupil will receive. The school completes a ‘Baseline Checklist’ to give updated information on the learning levels of the pupil. The parent/carer is invited to meet with the B&LSS to set up the support for their child. Other agencies are contacted for information and a multi-professional network is created. This is also the Team Around the Child (TAC). Support begins and is reviewed every term at a Review Meeting involving the B&LSS, parents/carers, the school and any other relevant agencies. Support is usually for two terms, but this can be negotiable depending on the needs of the child.

WANDSWORTH BEHAVIOUR & LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICE What types of support does the B&LSS offer? Small Group teaching sessions at the PRU In-School peripatetic teaching support Advice and Consultation Learning Mentor support TAC and Network Meetings support Support to Head Teachers The pupils who receive the above types of support have been identified by their schools as having Special Educational Needs (SEN), but they do not have a ‘Statement of SEN’ or ‘Education, Health & Care Plan’ (EHCP). Many pupils manage to make good progress and move back to school without further support. Some pupils, due to their many and complex needs, go on to have a Statement or EHCP. On average, 25% of the pupils we work with go on to have a request made for a Statement / EHCP or to actually have a Statement / EHCP. Moderate Learning Disabilities (MLD) The pupils who receive MLD support can have Special Educational Needs (SEN) without a Statement / EHCP or they can have a Statement / EHCP.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
