Admissions / Reviews / Transfers

Parents/carers and professionals are welcome to visit the school, by arrangement, in order to see the facilities and speak to the staff. Please contact Mrs Bridie Dorning, Interim Principal on 0113 293 0236. The visit may be used as a fact finding exercise without obligation on either side.

Each pupil has a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP), which is reviewed annually. The teacher’s Annual Report outlines the pupil’s progress made towards the objectives on the Statement or EHCP. This is supported by reports from therapists, the school Medical Officer and, if appropriate, the Educational Psychologist. A pupil’s Statement may be revised at this time if his/her needs have changed and parents/carers can call a review meeting at any stage throughout the year.

There are occasions when parents/carers, teaching or therapy staff feel that the needs of a pupil would be better served by a transfer to either a mainstream school or to a different Special School. A review meeting will then be held, so that parents/carers and staff can exchange information and come to an informed decision about the best placement for the pupil, and, if necessary, plan a smooth transition to the new school.
