Specialist Education and Training Support Service (S.E.a.T.S.S.)


S.E.a.T.S.S is a specialist SEND advisory service supporting children and young people aged from 0-25 years and linking closely with health and other professionals.

As a service we offer a wide range of SEND support, advice and training opportunities for schools and settings to enable them to deliver high quality inclusive education. We also provide advice and support for individual children with SEND to ensure that the people who work with them and their families are equipped to understand and meet their individual needs. 

S.E.a.T.S.S is made up of 4 teams:

  • Team 1 - Autism/Social Communication
  • Team 2 – Cognition and Learning
  • Team 3 – Physical and Complex Medical Needs, Sensory Needs (including MSI, Vision and Hearing)
  • Team 4 – Training and Special Projects

In addition, S.E.a.T.S.S has Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) specialist teachers in each of our teams, who work closely together delivering coordinated support through personalised approaches and interventions, modelling strategies, supporting planning, training etc.  This support will be tailored for schools and the pupils they support; we are available to support pupils with existing EHCP’s and those on SEND support.
When and how do you refer a pupil?

  1. Raise your concerns with the professional(s) working with the young person (Early Years, Education, Health, EPS or Other), plan and implement strategies these services recommend. If these are unsuccessful you can then consider the referral option.
  2. Referral to S.E.a.T.S.S is through an online referral form.
  3. The referrer and appropriate settings, schools or professionals will be contacted following the referral to agree support packages and to create individual support plans.
