Ealing children’s integrated response service (ECIRS) 2018/19

This service is available for Academies, Maintained schools and Other schools and settings


ECIRS is the single point of entry for all referrals where there is a need for support, or where there are specific concerns about the welfare of a child or young person.

Academic year 2018/19

A single point of entry provides an effective way of ensuring a child gets the right help at the right time as soon as a concern is raised. It also reduces the need for information sharing between different services which guards against children ‘slipping through the net’.
