Launch of the SEMH High Needs Pathway

The start of the new academic term marks the launch of the Social Emotional and Mental Health High Needs (SEMH HN) Pathway. The purpose of the pathway is to reduce risk of exclusions for children presenting with SEMH needs and has been adapted to anticipate the launch of the Emotionally Based School Avoidance pathway, due to be launched in October.

The work of the SEMH High Needs team is primarily to support the prevention of exclusion through early intervention and responsive support.

All forms to request support via this pathway can be found on the local offer page here.

Melissa Jones, Senior Educational Psychologist and Jane Shaw, SISS SEMH team lead
