Action required to initiate referral:

The Local Authority will now assess the request for `Education Support on (Medical Grounds)` against their criteria and will decide what ones to forward to the Pilgrim School. We shall investigate each case further and consider whether tailored provision can be offered.

If a school is concerned about a pupil: -

  • with potentially long-term sickness
  • who is unable to attend school because of anxiety or other mental health difficulties
  • who is having recurrent bouts of chronic illness leading to cumulative lengthy periods of absence (in which case advice and coping strategies may be offered)

and the school can demonstrate that it has taken all possible steps to address or respond to the situation but without success, then the school should complete the form provided for download, copies of which have been sent to all Lincolnshire schools.

The form available to download here:

Request for Educational Support on Medical Grounds (ES.Med)

An Individual Healthcare Plan is required to be completed as part of the Referral process and can be downloaded here:

Amber Hill - Community Coffee Morning

Amber Hill recently held a community coffee morning as part of the pupil’s Vocational Study course and also to build relationships with the local village. Pupils baked cakes for the event which were sold to raise money and tea and coffee was served for free. We were delighted to have 20 visitors from the village who were genuinely pleased that the school was open again after many years of being closed. Many thanks to LC and LS for organising the cake bake with pupils.

Celebrating Success - Dress as your Hero for Remembrance Day
