Admission to special schools

All admissions to special schools and resourced provisions are agreed through admission panel meetings held once a term and annually.

An Education, Health and Care plan or a Statement of Special Educational Need is required for all children and young people who are enrolled to a special school or resourced provision.

If you feel that a special school or resourced provision would be the most appropriate placement for your child or yourself this should be discussed at their or your annual review.
