Inclusion Support Line
The line is available between 9am and 5pm Monday - Friday. This resource is open to all education settings as well as colleagues working in health and social care. The number for this line is: 01473 265502 and the email address is email@example.com. A web chat option is also available on the webpage.
Please note that the support line is designed for general enquiries or ‘quick questions’ and not for individual pupil discussion. For example, you may have a question around systems, processes, school-based interventions, the Graduated Response, etc.
Inclusion Support Meetings
Schools can also book free 20 minute online Inclusion Support Meetings to access advice and guidance from a specialist teacher to support early intervention around a pupil’s cognition and learning difficulties, including specific learning difficulties. To book an ISM click here.
