Inclusion Services is a team within the Education department of Southampton City Council. Inclusion Services share a common ambition of improving outcomes for children and young people in our city by working in collaboration with:
- Alternative education providers
- Statutory and non-statutory agencies
- Other council services
Our focus is on children and young people of school age and the delivery of statutory obligations placed upon the local authority. Every school child in the city is covered by the work that we do, irrespective of whether they are ever referred to our service.
Our key responsibilities are focused on promoting inclusivity for children within education. We aim to secure the best possible educational outcomes for children with a particular focus on those who are vulnerable, or at risk of both school and social exclusion.
We provide support to schools and school leaders, parents and young people in developing best practice whilst also advising around their legal rights and responsibilities.
Through working within legal frameworks and legislation, our primary objective in Inclusion Services is for every child to have an equal opportunity to access their statutory rights to an educational provision and to ensure that no child is left behind. We do this through partnership working in areas such as:
- School Exclusions
- Pupils with medical conditions
- Pupil Referral Units Commissioning
- Children Missing Education (CME)
- Elective Home Education (EHE)
- Reduced Timetables
- Southampton Language Service
- Managed Moves
- Fair Access Processes
