03 SEND School Admissions

We are committed to meeting the needs of all children and young people including those with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. We would ask parents/carers to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate support and intervention can be planned and implemented. Advice from the Local Authority (LA) or other agencies may be requested to ensure the school can meet any needs appropriately.

Full details of our admission arrangements can be found in the school admissions policy. Further details about admissions across the Local Authority (LA) are available from Durham County Council.

Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
