     N.B.        1) Risk factors would have been evident through assessment at the beginning of TaMHS intervention

                 2) Fixed term exclusion, permanent exclusion, non/poor attendance negative costing are based on the
                 Swindon Family LIFE programme report, 2009

                 3) Average costs of tier 3/4 interventions are based on those calculated for Swindon

                 PERMANENT EXCLUSION - Costs are to be estimated proportionately per calendar year,
                 per month of intervention. Therefore assuming that the cost of permanent exclusion from
                 school and the resultant maximum cost of £18,000 per annum for home tutoring the
                 monthly cost will be £1500 per month. If the factor is applicable to a child who is worked    £1500 (per month)
                 with from April to March the total estimated cost will be £18000. If the intervention is from
                 September to December the estimated cost will be £9000 etc.
                 FIXED TERM EXCLUSION - The cost is calculated per event, using comparable costs of
                 similar interventions. The cost also assumes the initiation of a Team Around the Child
                                                                                                                 £500 (per event)
                 (TAC) and completion of CAF at initial intervention and TAC review/action plan review at
                 subsequent exclusions
                 NON-POOR ATTENDANCE - Where the non attendance is over 20% and a TAC is
                 implemented . The cost is estimated at £580 per month or £58 per hour based on the costs            £580 (per
                 of a similar professional practitioner , pro-rata on the basis of 10 hours intervention by an     intervention)
                 Educational Welfare Officer.
                 TIER THREE - This is calculated on the average cost of cases from 2008-09 and 2009/10
                 (based on Swindon's calculation)                                                                   £2,740.00
                 OTHER/TIER FOUR - Tier Four is calculated on the average cost of cases from 2008-09
                 and 2009-10. Other should be calculated per event or average as appropriate.                          TBA



B) PROJECT LEAD'S COMMENTS

                 Most outcomes have been achieved by working across agency boundaries and working collaboratively with the
                 network around the child or young person. This type of seamless intervention is far more easy to achieve in a
                 school setting where the child or young person is already in situ and parents and carers have easy access to
                 all the practitioners and decision making structures in a non stigmatising setting. Our experince has been that
                 many of the CYP identified by TaMHS have complex needs requiring easy access to specialist expertise on a
                 par with specialist CAMHS and other specialist services. What has been achieved therefore is to deliver
                 specialist interventions at a lower cost because early identification has prevented an escellation of difficulties
                 and the manner of delivery to the network has been more acceptable and influential.
