The Joint Support Team

Every educational establishment in East Renfrewshire has a working Joint Support Team (JST) who meet regularly to discuss progress, share information and plan any additional support that a child/ young person may require. The JST in East Renfrewshire is a multi disciplinary meeting which places children/ young people at the centre of a multi agency approach.

The JST consists of a member of the senior management team in the school (who is usually the chair of the meeting) educational psychologist,  school social worker,  health professional and staff from family learning (where appropriate).  Parents’ permission is always sought before discussion at the JST.
