Admission Arrangements


Request for admissions are received from the Area Special Educational Needs Office/ Educational Psychology Service, usually on completion of a statutory assessment of special educational needs or Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). It is expected that all pupils will have a statement of special educational needs or EHCP.


On receipt of a request and documentation from the Area SEN Office, the following procedures will apply:

  •  A Non-Prejudicial Visit (NPV)to the school by the potential pupil and her/his parents/carers
  •  A review of the documentation relating to the pupil by the Headteacher and potential class teacher.


If parents, involved professionals and the school agree that a place is appropriate the Area SEN Office will be informed. The SEN Office will request a place and then give approval, informing schools and parents of an admission date.


Parents can contact SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) for advice regarding the admission arrangements to our school. Telephone: 0300 123 6706 or Email:
