Admission Arrangements for Pupils with SEN or Disabilities

Our Admission Policy is based upon the agreed LA Admissions Policy. 

Normal admission arrangements will be followed for pupils with ‘SEN or Disabilities’

We endeavour to be a fully inclusive school.

All our children will be treated according to their needs in line with the school policy for ‘Inclusion’. No pupil will be denied admission because of gender, creed, race, physical ability or academic achievement.

We will take all steps possible to provide effective educational provision. Where a pupil has a particular need e.g. wheelchair access, the Trust will ensure that reasonable adjustments are made for that pupil’s need to be fully met.

If a pupil is transferring into the school with an EHCP or has been in receipt of extra support from LA centrally funded resources in their previous setting, continuation of this support will be negotiated with the appropriate member of the LA, to ensure that needs can be met.
