TAS – Team around the school

A termly, multiagency meeting and is a collaborative way of working across services, schools and settings with children and young people at the centre of all we do. The aim is to address issues that impact on the education of our children and young people and use this to sign post to alternative agencies if necessary. The school can bring any lower level concerns into a Team Around the School, ( parental consent is obtained at the point of admission) In addition if a young person wants support without consent of their parents/carers, then professionals involved need to use the Fraser Guidelines to help assess whether a child has the maturity to make their own decisions and to understand the implications of those decisions.
If the The Pendlebury Centre have lower level concerns regarding a child’s attendance, family relationships, financial difficulties, parenting, a child’s self-esteem/confidence/mental health (please note this is not an exhaustive list) but it does not meet the threshold of the Early Help Panel or the Threshold of Social Care, the case can be heard at Team Around the School.

ASD Team

CIAG – Careers

CSE worker

Education Welfare


School Age Plus

School Nurse

YOT -Youth Offending team

Young Carers

Support for Stockport Schools – ‘Checkpoint’

Checkpoint will provide national and local updates on matters relating to the mental health and wellbeing of young people.

Through consultation between schools and stakeholders Checkpoint will identify a range of training opportunities which, when utilised, will empower schools to deliver tier 1/2 therapeutic interventions. Checkpoint will support colleagues to navigate the specialist services needed to support students holistically.

Checkpoint will facilitate a forum for colleagues to share good practice, identify training needs and have an opportunity for peer supervision.

Ofsted outstandingThe Pendlebury Centre is held in high esteem by senior leaders in local schools. They cite the phenomenal success you have in supporting their most vulnerable pupils.
These senior leaders value the support you give not only to pupils, but to their school staff through the regular ‘checkpoint’ surgeries, when you share your expertise willingly with them.” (Ofsted 2017)
