Pathways Provision

The Pathways Team provides a transdisciplinary approach, supporting  pupils aged 10 -15 who are elective school refusers due to anxiety and/or neurodiverse needs. Support is overseen and coordinated by a lead CCN specialist teacher, who will liaise with the pupil’s host school, parents, and external professionals. They will coordinate the  transdisciplinary approach and provision, referring to the following specialists at Stage 2  as appropriate:

¨ Cognitive assessments and SpLD diagnostics – Learning Support Team

¨ Speech and Language Team

¨ Occupational Therapy (e.g. sensory assessment, sensory diets, direct therapy etc.)

¨ SEMH Advisory Team

The Team will provide support:

¨ At home—specialist teacher visits, virtual meetings, resources etc.

¨ Through community activities

¨ Liaison and advice with pupil’s host school

¨ Professional meetings

¨ Provision of reports

¨ At the dedicated Pathways Team centre, which is designed to provide support for up to four pupils on a part time, short term basis

¨ Transdisciplinary assessment of needs, leading to a personalised learning pathways for each pupil              

¨ Transition support to enable reintegration into an appropriate full time educational provision

The provision of support is bespoke to each pupil to meet their individual needs,

therefore timings for transition from Stage 1 to Stage 2, and from Stage 2 back  to full time education, will vary.  Transitions will be discussed at pupil review meetings.
