Mainstream secondary schools

Our specialist education and health services allow mainstream secondary schools to identify and address a broad range of needs onsite. We work with mainstream secondary schools to provide accessible, value for money, specialist services.

What services do we provide to mainstream secondary schools?

Our services can be separated into the following categories:

All of our services can be commissioned on an individual, group and whole school level according to your needs. All levels of need can access our specialist assessments, interventions, training and consultancy services.

How do we work with mainstream secondary schools?

We work onsite and in partnership with mainstream secondary schools. We work to increase knowledge within settings through onsite bespoke training, in addition to external CPD events we run throughout the year. Having a service level agreement with us opens up more opportunities for us to work with mainstream secondary schools through flexible access to our training and multidisciplinary team.


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

How can mainstream secondary schools commission our services?

Our services can be commissioned through a service level agreements  or on a standalone basis. Commissioning our services through a service level agreement facilitates our multidisciplinary, joined-up, holistic approach. Service level agreements are bespoke for all budgets and requirements. To arrange a discussion about options for a service level agreement then please get in touch to talk to a member of our team.

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.

Which children and young people do we work with?

We work with the children and young people you want us to work with. Our open referral policy means that our services are available for all areas and levels of need. We work with children and young people who might have needs to be identified and addressed in order to maximise their potential.

Where do our services take place?

The majority of the time our services will take place onsite, at your mainstream secondary school. Providing services onsite in schools makes it easier to share strategies and work in partnership with education staff, children and young people. There may be times when it is more appropriate to receive services away from a school setting, in these cases we have multiple clinics across the Greater Manchester area.

When would a mainstream secondary school require input from EHP?

A mainstream secondary school could require input from EHP for various reasons. We provide a broad range of services to suit all requirements. Schools may use our services for many reasons, including:

  • Needing support from multiple professionals
  • Wanting a joined-up approach to SEND
  • Requiring specialist social, emotional and mental health services
  • Increasing attainment and maximising potential
  • Extending current provision

Input provided by EHP supports secondary schools in fulfilling their roles as set out in the SEND code of practice (2015).

Every school is required to identify and address the SEN of the pupils that they support. Mainstream schools, which in this chapter includes maintained schools and academies that are not special schools, maintained nursery schools, 16 to19 academies, alternative provision academies and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), must:

  • use their best endeavours to make sure that a child with SEN gets the support they need – this means doing everything they can to meet children and young people's SEN
  • ensure that children and young people with SEN engage in the activities of the school alongside pupils who do not have SEN
