Applying for a Place at our School

To join our school, your child must have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) in place. Learners who are identified as having additional needs but do not yet have an EHCP, will need to undergo the Education, Health and Care Assessment Request (ECHAR) process through the local authority.

We have a formal admissions procedure which is outlined in our Admissions Policy and which ensures we are able to meet a learner’s needs.

Our school works with learners aged between 6 and 16 who have special educational needs mainly within the areas of Social and Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and communication difficulties However, we can also support learners with a wide range of needs falling within the broad categories of Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Physical and Sensory and SEMH.

Learners can join our school at any time during the school year and will follow a personalised curriculum package to meet their individual needs.

Our caring and committed staff team will spend time getting to know you and your child during a carefully planned transition, to ensure they feel safe, settled, secure, and ready to learn.

We hold Open Days in the Autumn and Spring Terms each year, which are by invitation. Please contact your current provision or Local Authority SEND Co-ordinator for more information about joining our unique and special school.
