Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Assessments provide a preliminary assessment of a pupil’s progress in relation to their SEMH needs in school. The assessment takes an holistic approach and recognises that behaviour is often a communication of an underlying, unattended need or difficulty which is creating a barrier to learning.

Social Emotional and Mental Health Assessments are carried out by a Specialist Teacher who has experience of supporting schools to work with students with a wide range of social emotional and mental health needs.

Assessments will include some, or all of the following, as appropriate:

  • Discussion with SENCo and/or other key members of staff
  • Brief school based observation in structured and unstructured environments.
  • Use of assessment tools.
  • Questionnaire or discussion with parent/carers.
  • Written summary with advice and guidance.
  • Meeting to feed back to parents and/or staff.
  • Discussion with school within one term to review progress towards recommended outcomes.
