Youth Offending Service

When a young person is placed in custody, the Youth Offending Service will contact the Special Education Needs (SEN) Team to find out if they have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). 

If there is an EHCP in place, the SEND Coordinator and the Youth Offending Services (YOS) Case Manager for the young person in custody will then meet with each other.

Together they will ensure that the custodial establishment (the person or organisation that has custody of the child or young person) has all the information that they need to provide education for the young person during their period of remand or sentence and plan for their release and re-integration into education within the community.
