Special Schools

The School Admissions Team do not co-ordinate the admission of children into Special Schools, the Additional Needs Team are responsible for this.  Special Schools provide education for children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan.  These children can also attend mainstream schools.

If you are unsure whether your child has a Statement or Education, Health and Care Plan, you can check with your child’s school.  Your child may receive additional help, but this does not necessarily mean that they have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan.

If you feel your child should be assessed to see if they may need a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan, please talk to your child’s current school, or if they have not yet started school, please talk to the school that you are considering applying for. You may also contact the ‘Liaise’ SEN Information, Advice and Support Team .

Starting Reception and Transferring to Junior or Secondary School

If your child has a Statement or Education, Health and Care Plan, the school they will attend will depend on which school can meet your child’s needs.  You should contact your named officer within the Additional Needs Team to discuss your child’s education.  Your named officer’s contact details will be at the top of any correspondence you receive about your child’s special educational needs. You should also contact this person for advice if your child is being formally assessed.

Places for the upcoming Reception, Year 3 (Junior) and Year 7 year are allocated to children who have a Statement or Education, Health and Care Plan before other children. 

For further information please contact your child’s named officer or use the contact details provided on this page.

For a list of special schools please see ‘A-Z List of Schools’ in the ‘Top Tasks’ to the right of this page.
