Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision, and we are here to help – every step of the way.
Enquiries can be made via the enquiry form on this website, or by telephoning the School admissions team on 01223 277438.
Parents or a representative from the local authority will be invited to visit the School, meet with the Head teacher and view the facilities available.
Should a formal request for placement be made, we will arrange for a day or residential assessment to be undertaken and produce an assessment report detailing the placement offer and fees, as appropriate.
Once a placement has been agreed by the local authority, we will develop and implement a comprehensive transition plan.
Criteria for admission:
Students must have a final Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education, Health and Care Plan and will be diagnosed with high functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. However, due to the variation in diagnostic terminology, pupils may be diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder, autistic spectrum condition, autism or as having autistic traits.
Upon admission, a baseline assessment is undertaken and used in conjunction with pupils’ Statements of Special Educational Needs (SSEN) or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) to help develop Individual Education Plans, Behaviour Plans and, where relevant, Placement Plans.
These person-centred plans detail pupils’ individualised academic, leisure and therapy programmes. They also identify areas of ability and need, as well as personal aims and aspirations.
