How to make a referral?

(Until 15th July 2022 only - For September 2022 referrals please see drop down boxes under referrals tab)

 

Self referral:

 

If you would like to attend a session, please contact Heather on 07888 678239 to discuss your needs. Together we can decide on the details such as the objectives, timing, dates, and number of sessions, cost, and any extra requirements such as reports.

 

Health and social care professionals:

 

If you would like to refer a client then following discussion with them, and with their consent, please contact Heather on 07888 678239 outlining the reasons for referral and to discuss funding the sessions. We can then contact the client directly to assess their needs and to set up the sessions. With client consent we are able to write reports and liaise with you regarding the progress a client makes during the sessions.

 

Schools and Colleges:

 

If you would like to refer a learner for equine assisted learning then following discussion with the learner and their parents/carers, and with their consent, please contact Heather on 07888 678239 outlining the reasons for referral and to discuss funding for the sessions. We can then assess their needs and set up the sessions and enrol them for any qualifications if they wish to undertake one.

 

We mostly offer 1:1 sessions. Occasionally we may be able to offer a session for a couple of learners if they are known to each other and work well together. We do a minimum of 12 sessions as we feel it takes time to get to know the learner and then once they are relaxed and safe we can really work with them and widen the range of activities and learning opportunities. We usually make an assessment of needs over the first 6 weeks and feedback to the referrer. 

 

We welcome the opportunity during any programme to liaise with schools and parents about the progress of any learner undertaking equine assisted learning or to attend any relevant meetings. Staff from the school and parents/carers are welcome to attend the sessions as needed. A report outlining progress for each term will be sent at the end of Terms 2, 4 and 6 to the referrer. 

 

Referral and Permission forms: A referral form must be completed before sessions can start

 

Following discussion with Heather please complete the referral form (using the links below for electronic completion or download pdf/word versions) and return to Heather at info@wiltshireequineassistedlearning.co.uk. Our Terms of Business can also be downloaded for your own reference. The permission forms, which need to be signed by a parent/carer, can also be signed electronically or downloaded and brought along to the first session. We are committed to safeguarding our learners and our Safeguarding Policy and Statement can be also downloaded for the records of the referrer as required for Alternative Education Providers in Keeping Children Safe in Education (2021). Please also look under the safeguarding tab for our Covid19 policies and what to do on arrival at WEAL.

Please note we use JotForm electronic forms which are served across a protected 256 bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connection that uses a SHA256 Certificate. It is the industry standard protection. They are also GDPR compliant.
