About us


The 0-25 SEND Inclusive Education Service covers support for children, young people and young adults with SEND 0-25 years and has two teams, the high and low incidence teams.

  1. We will continue to trade our services around Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH) unless there is specific reference in an EHCP to the Local Authority SEMH team which will not be traded and will form part of your subsidised core offer.

  2. We will trade in all areas of training.

  3. For other areas of Special Educational Needs we will be providing schools with a subsidised allocation, i.e. at no charge to the school, from the 0-25 SEND Inclusive Education Service.

We will continue to offer traded services for schools and colleges and other organisations where the work is not statutory, for example, training, Post 16 support, where there is the capacity to do so. Please contact us for your requirements or go onto the Skills4Bradford.

Frequently asked Questions regarding traded and subsidised offer


Q. What if we've already bought a package?

A. Carrying forward time from academic year 18/19 to 19/20

All packages that have been purchased in academic year 18/19 will be allowed a carry over as follows:

  • Packages purchased in term 1 of academic year 18/19 have until the end of term 1 academic year 19/20 to use the time.
  • Packages purchased in term 2 of academic year 18/19 have until the end of term 2 academic year 19/20 to use the time.
  • Packages purchased in term 3 of academic year 18/19 have until the end of term 3 academic year 19/20 to use the time.

 

Q. If we buy a package does it need to be used in this academic year, or can we carry forward any hours that we do not use into the next academic year?

A. The package needs to be used in the current academic year. There will be no role over from 19/20 into 20/21

 

Q. Can we have a complete refund or partial refund if we want to reduce our package?

A. Packages are not refundable, the above answer gives a time frame to use the hours remaining.

 

Q. Is the offer for EHCPs different when it is in regard to SEMH?

A. If there is specific mention in the EHCP to the SEMH team for example in Section F Educational Provision to be provided by the LA SEMH Team then this would not be traded. Anything else regarding SEMH will be traded.

 

Q. Do we pay for attendance to EHCP reviews or JAMs?

A. If the pupil has SEMH and the school would like attendance of an SEMH specialist at the review and there is no specific mention of this service in the EHCP then attendance of an SEMH specialist would form part of the traded offer. For all other pupils this would need to form part of the school subsidised offer.

A. There is an allocation of time for contribution to new assessments.

 

Q. How do we refer to the service and is it the same for traded/non-traded?

A. Referral forms can be found on Skills4bradford website http://www.skills4bradford.co.uk/

 

Q. Is attendance at a hub part of the subsidised offer for everyone?

A. The hub appointments are only 30 mins so on a trial basis for this academic year they will be subsidised for all areas of need including SEMH.

 

Q. What happens if we buy a package and they say we need a full learning assessment but we have no hours left?

A. Please contact the service as there may be some flexibility to support this, however, this cannot be guaranteed.

 

Q. Can we buy in Exam Access support from the C&L team or does this have to be part of allocated sessions?

 A. Exam Access is a fully traded part of the service. These are deductible from a package.
