Making a Referral for our Service

Students are referred to the Voyage Learning Campus via the North Somerset Inclusion Panel.

Referrals to the Pupil Referral Unit are made if a student has been permanently excluded from a mainstream school and it is agreed that a period of time in the VLC will help the student prepare for a return to a mainstream setting.

Referrals to our medical tuition service are made by schools on the advice of a senior health professional, for example:

  • Consultant Paediatrician or other Medical consultant
  • Consultant Child Psychiatrist
  • Clinical Child Psychologist
  • Senior CAMHS clinician
  • Senior Education Psychologist

Schools are required to complete an Inclusion Panel referral form and submit this to the Inclusion Panel. In most cases, we would hope to provide education at our tuition site; limited home tuition is available for students with significant medical difficulties.

Our tuition service works closely with the student, family and the home school to support the young person in returning successfully to mainstream provision.

Further information about medical tuition referrals can be found in the Medical Tuition Referral document
