PIPSS Inclusion Hub

The Pupil Inclusion Parent Support Service (PIPSS) is a Service working with the children and young people who attend Ayresome Primary School. Our aim is to intervene early to prevent and address emotional and social problems within the school, family and the wider community.

As a service we aim to try and remove any barriers to learning thus enabling each and every child to reach their full potential.

The PIPSS includes a number of different professionals for example; social workers, SEMH teaching assistants, educational welfare officers, attendance officers and those professionals dealing with specialist educational needs and disabilities. All these professional have core expertise in children’s social, emotional and behavioural development. We will work in partnership with parents/carers, the child/children and other relevant professionals to address any concerns.
