Spring Bank Holiday on Monday 27 May means all rubbish and recycling collections will be one day later that week, including Friday collections taking place on Saturday 1 June.
Recycling and rubbish collection days are changing for some households in Mendip and South Somerset. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.


As part of Somerset’s commitment to reducing exclusion, improving attendance and children receiving the right support at the right time, new guidance and resources have been developed and are shared here. We would like to thank the local school leaders for their engagement in producing this guidance.

The inclusion offer document provides a comprehensive overview of the guidance and the support offer, starting from universal whole-school approaches and moving through three steps as part of a laddered response where there are ongoing concerns regarding an individual child or young person. Page one is an overall summary with links to more information embedded throughout.

Outlines the Inclusion Somerset Offer from universal support, targeted school based support, targeted support from external agencies and additional support.



Pastoral Support Plan

The Somerset Pastoral Support Plan provides a framework and template for responding to children and young people who present with challenging behaviour in education settings. It is a trauma-informed approach that draws on functional analysis and promotes a holistic perspective to inform evidence-based solutions.

Children at risk of exclusion checklist of expectations

The checklist of expectations draws on national government guidance, legislation and local Somerset context to clarify the duties and expectations of schools with regard to children and young people who present with challenging behaviour and are at risk of exclusion from school.
