STLS Clinic Consulation
SENCOs can book 45-minute slots, this is predominantly a pre-LIFT consultation and discussion and will not replace the LIFT process. It will, where appropriate, also be an option for an outcome following discussions at LIFT. Pupils can be discussed anonymously as part of general discussions and therefore no parental agreement is required.
If it is decided that additional STLS support is needed to assess the pupil, schools will need to bring the case to LIFT in the usual way.
Discussions can be around individual pupils, whole class or whole school/setting issues and we actively encourage the most relevant members of staff to attend the clinic alongside the SENCO. Following you clinic session, you will be emailed a summary of the discussion and any recommendations that were made. It would be helpful if SENCOs could provide any relevant information, referenced to the Mainstream Core Standards, prior to the clinic to ensure that the STLS staff can prepare the most appropriate resources.
