The Inclusion Team holds regular pupil welfare meetings to review the support that is in place for pupils with SEND and other vulnerable groups. These meetings help to ensure that any issues which pupils might be facing are quickly addressed. Actions from pupil welfare meetings might include: referrals to external services, in-class observations and support or pupils being offered a specific intervention based on their presenting needs.
