An expected prerequisite for taking a referral is that early years settings and schools demonstrate that they have used their resources and best endeavour’s to meet the child/young person’s needs, the role of these meetings is then to offer advice and support though solution focus discussions If a referral is accepted expected outcomes are agreed to form the basis of the STLS work.
There are four main outcomes from a LIFT discussion:
- Advice, support and ideas from the discussion at the meeting to take back and try
- Access to training programmes or the opportunity for bespoke training
- Support from another school
- Specialist Intervention from a specialist teacher, special school outreach teacher, Educational Psychologist (through the core discretionary offer or commissioning), Early Help involvement or other district based SEND provider.
