Some pupils may escalate to a state of crisis or where they are causing a high level of concern. They may be presenting with safeguarding issues to themselves and to others and may be at severe risk of permanent exclusion from school. The BS mentors and other key workers in the Inclusion Services present these pupils to the Inclusion/SEN Managers group. This group meet on a monthly basis to discuss additional support and advice that might be available for these pupils and their schools. The aim is to provide a joined up and co-ordinated response for the benefit of pupils, schools and parents/carers.
