Finding your Way

 

When you may need to refer to other agencies:

At a meeting to review the child's IPM the SENCO, key worker in consultation with parents should consider: •has progress been made? •what are the parents' views? •is there a need for more information or advice about the child? This may result in a request for help from external services.

There are times when an Individual Provision Map and strategies are not really working or the child is not making progress and we need to look for further support from other agencies. The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) should really be the start of this and in fact a completed CAF assessment form is often required by many agencies as the start of a referral for external services support.
