Admission of children with SEND 

Steps are taken to ensure the School’s admission process is fair and equitable to all pupils. This School will not discriminate against children with SEND in the arrangements it makes for determining admission.

 

Children with statements of Special Educational Needs/EHCPs will be admitted unless through the consultation process it is demonstrated that:

  • It would be unsuitable for the age, ability, aptitude or SEN of the child or young person, or
  • The attendance of the child or young person there would be incompatible with the efficient education of others, or the efficient use of resources.
