The Hull Inclusion and Behaviour support service is linked to the Hull SENDIASS Service and aims to support parents and/or carers of children who have Special Education Needs and are experiencing some behaviour issues at school. 

"KIDS have supported my family tremendously and have made a very stressful situation easier to deal with. Although my situation is not yet resolved, I know with KIDS support, I will get help with finding the right outcome to help my family."

"I felt that our advisor was at the end of the phone when needed and gave us good advice."

How does the service work?

The school inclusion service provides impartial & independent information, advice and support to parents/carers around issues of children & young people who have special educational needs but are either exhibiting challenging behaviours or showing significant anxieties regarding their education.  Children may be at the risk of exclusion from school or previously been excluded, may have low attendance and require special educational needs support.

This confidential service offers support, advice and mediation to help build bridges between parties which can prevent children being excluded. It works with the principle that the children’s and parents’ views are listened to and valued. 

The children involved are encouraged to actively participate in school meetings and reviews related to them. Through partnership working with schools, the local authority and other partners the Inclusion Project works to identify the support requirements for vulnerable children and young people.
