Specialist provision

Ideally, children should receive their education in their local catchment school. Most children do, and schools can make changes to help children with additional needs to be able to access the curriculum.

Sometimes, children might need to go to a special unit or school. This is decided at a Placement Panel, by people working with the child, taking into account the family's needs. The best provision for the child might be one of the following:

Observation and Assessment Units

Placement in these units is short term, for assessment.
