Referral Enquiries


The school accepts direct referrals from all Local Authorities throughout the UK and Ireland. Our record for meeting the diverse needs of children and young people in a cost effective manner is considered to be excellent.

We maintain dialogue with our colleagues in the Local Authority sector to ensure our services are designed to address their individual placement requirements. Many of our pupils are placed under the National Framework Agreement which is monitored on behalf of the Local Authorities by Scotland Excel

At the initial referral stage we liaise with the allocated Social Worker who provides comprehensive information to enable us to undertake a sound assessment of need and plan our interventions in collaboration with the child, their family/carer and all relevant partner agencies. This approach ensures that a clear outcomes- based plan is in place to support and meet the individual needs of each child or young person.

Enquiries about referrals should be addressed to Mike Greenshields on 01383 860731 or email enquiries@hillsideschool.co.uk
