Targeted Inclusion Service


Who are we?

The service is made up of several teams.

The Inclusion Support Team

This is a multi-skilled team providing support for children and young people of statutory school age who are at risk of exclusion.

They provide a range of core services to support schools, families, children and young people to reduce exclusions and improve mental health, attendance and engagement in education and attainment. The team is also able to offer a range of clinical and non-clinical expertise.

Looked After Children (LAC) Education Team

This team manages the Brent Virtual School for looked after children.

Education Welfare Service

The Education Welfare Service advises and supports students, parents and schools to improve school attendance.

Ashley College, alternative provision for children and young people with health needs

Ashley College provides education for children and young people resident in Brent of statutory school age who are temporarily unable to attend school because of physical or mental illness or complex health needs.

Schools wishing to access this provision should complete an inclusion assessment and referral form. This must be supported by evidence from a medical consultant which explains the impact the pupil's illness has on their ability to attend school. 

The service also works flexibly with schools to ensure continuity and return pupils to mainstream schooling if possible.

Brent River College, Pupil Referral Unit

Brent River College provides education for primary and secondary-aged students of statutory school age who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school.
