Free schools

Free schools can access the full range of services our education and health professionals offer. We provide one place to access all specialist education and health services.

What services do we provide to free schools?

Our services are suitable for all areas and levels of need and can be separated into the following categories:

Our services can be provided on a standalone basis  and through a service level agreement  from as many specialisms as required. All services can be commissioned on an individual, group and systemic level. Our flexible service adapts to the needs of the child, young person, and education setting.

How do we work with free schools?

We work in partnership with free schools, onsite to provide an integrated education and health service. Read more about how we work with free schools:

In addition to our bespoke services, we run regular external CPD events throughout the year for all education professionals.

Which other types of free schools do we work with?

As we work in line with the SEND code of practice (2015), we work with the whole 0-25 age range and all free schools within this range, including:

  • University technical colleges
  • Studio schools

Due to the broad range of services our professionals offer, we can support all areas and levels of SEND.

How can free schools commission our services?

Free schools can commission our services through a bespoke service level agreement  and on a standalone basis . Service level agreements are designed around a school's budget and requirements. To arrange a meeting to discuss which option would be best for your school and how we can help please email us on or call us on 0330 088 8408.


Our services can be funded through a variety of ways.

How can free schools refer to our specialist education and health services?

Making a referral to our specialist education and health services can be done online , via emailing or through phoning 0330 088 8408. Our open referral policy ensures that we see the children and young people you would like us to work with.

What are the benefits of using EHP?

There are many benefits of using EHP in free schools, including:

  • An open referral policy
  • Instant access to education and health professionals
  • Flexibility within a service level agreement
  • A co-ordinated and joined-up service
  • Preventative and proactive services

Price promise

We are happy to discuss how we can match or better any existing education and health provision you may be currently receiving from either the local authority or another provider.

Where do our services take place?

Working with children and young people onsite, within a school not only reduces absences due to appointments, but also increases the opportunities to share strategies and gain a holistic understanding, which is why most of our services are provided onsite. At times a service may take place offsite, such as when specialist equipment is required or a training event.


Our training is available on and off site for education settings and organisations in relation to health, psychology and education.

When would a free school require input from EHP?

There are many reasons why a free school might require input from EHP. Examples of why free schools might use our services include:

  • A consistent and high quality service
  • Immediate access to a comprehensive and specialist service
  • Requiring flexibility within SEND provision
  • One place to access to education and health professionals

We support each individual student, staff member, and education setting in creating an inclusive, positive environment that maximises potential, wellbeing, and progress. Our services have been designed with the SEND code of practice (2015) at the core, so we support education settings in fulfilling their duties and responsibilities in regards to SEND.

All schools should have a clear approach to identifying and responding to SEN. The benefits of early identification are widely recognised – identifying need at the earliest point and then making effective provision improves long-term outcomes for the child or young person.

Free initial discussion

We provide a free initial discussion as part of our cost effective service for education settings and organisations we have not previously worked with.
