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 an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) which is reviewed annually or six monthly if a pupil is under 5 years of age. The teacher’s EHC3 Form outlines the pupil’s progress made towards the objectives on the EHCP. This is supported by reports from therapists, the school Medical Officer and, if appropriate, the Educational Psychologist. A pupil’s EHCP may be revised at this time if his/her needs have changed. 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.


Leeds Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice Support Service (SENDIASS) offers impartial, confidential free advice to all parents and carers of children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities.

Leeds SEND IASS will work with parents/carers children and young people to ensure that they are fully involved in the planning of SEN support for their individual needs in early years settings, schools and colleges.
