Partnerships for Inclusion of Neurodiversity in Schools (PINS)

We are really pleased to be joining up with Bolton Council and local partners for the PINS project. PINS is a national project funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and supported by NHS England (NHSE).

Partnerships for Inclusion of Neurodiversity in Schools (PINS) will bring health and education specialists and expert parent carers into mainstream primary settings to:

  • Help shape whole school SEND provision.
  • Provide early interventions at a whole school level.
  • Upskill school staff.
  • Support strengthening of partnerships between schools and parent carers.

The project will focus on strengthening knowledge, skills and improving environments to better meet the needs of neurodiverse children and reframe the focus to how a supportive learning environment and well-equipped school can improve the outcomes for this group of children. Schools participating will receive five days’ worth of specialist support.

The PINS project will run between now and March 2025. There will be 40 primary school from Greater Manchester taking part, of which 4 will be in Bolton.
