The education department within a Local Authority has an increased responsibility due to the fact that it holds the majority of information about children and young people. However this information is not always shared effectively, this is because few authorities have a joined up case support system to fulfill their own internal responsibility, and one that enables them to act as the hub for sharing information with outside agencies.
Pupil Support Services provides a common case management tool for a number of services such as education welfare, attendance, young parent support, behavioural support, sensory impairment and employment, with links to health and social care.
