Special Educational Needs
Mount Pleasant School is a small school with limited access to support resources, 8500 miles from the UK.
All parents must contact school in advance to advise of posting dates and inform the school of any Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND)/ Gifted and Talented (G&T)/ Health Issues.
Parents are asked to provide as much information about their child as possible including the contact details for their previous/current school.
If a child is currently accessing external services, such as Speech & Language Therapy or has a statement of educational needs or a Health & Education Plan then the family must also register with Children’s Educational Advisory Service (CEAS) in the UK.
Families should not accept a posting until an MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas (MASO) is complete. If your child has Special Educational Needs a MASO will be crucial in determining whether your family receive a Certificate of Educational Clearance.
MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas (MASO) may be required for your child, more information on the MASO flow chart can be found on our school web site.
A MASO is a partnership decision between school, health, social services and HQ BFSAI on the supportability of any children with special or additional needs.
The MASO panel at Mount Pleasant will meet to discuss any child where MASO paperwork is submitted to MOD Schools. The process for Mount Pleasant is supported by the MOD Educational Psychologist and MOD Targeted Services in Germany.
Parents may need to contact Children’s Education Advisory Service to register SEN. CEAS are part of MOD Schools based in the UK. You can contact CEAS by email [email protected], please include as much information as possible about your query, such as the age of your child(ren), an explanation of your situation to help the team respond to you and allow a few days for a response.
