CEAS - Children’s Education Advisory Service

CEAS provide information and advice about access to educational provision and services available to your child, in the U.K and around the world.

If your child is at School Action Plus, has a Statement of Special Educational Needs or has been permanently excluded from school then before accepting your posting you must inform CEAS who will be able to provide advice and support for your move.

CEAS is based at RAF Upavon.  Please contact them on email address enquiries@ceas.detsa.co.uk or phone them on 0044-1980-618244.  They will then check that your child’s additional needs can be met in this school.

They will request that all documentation you have on your child’s needs and share this with the Principal Educational Psychologist , school and any other outside agencies as required.

Failure to register with CEAS before arrival on Island may result in delay/non admittance to school.
