Integrated Resources - Specialist provision in mainstream schools

Integrated Resources are set up in mainstream schools. They cater for pupils with certain types of very significant Special Educational Needs (SEN) which cannot be easily met at their local school. They can do this because they have

  • extra staff with specialist knowledge,
  • specialist equipment and
  • a dedicated base within the school.

If your child attends an Integrated Resource (IR) they will

  • have an Education and Health Care (EHC) Plan which names the setting with the IR
  • attend a mainstream school, but it may not be a local one
  • be among other children in the school with similar Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • be able to take part in some of the school activities with the other children according to their individual needs

Your child may also be able to access the following services if they attend an IR:

  • travel to school by bus or taxi, paid for by the local authority
  • speech therapy, physiotherapy or nursing help provided in school if this is agreed by the Health Authority
