We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. In most cases normal admissions policy would apply, however we would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Such as extra visits, changes to furniture etc. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
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. Please view our School Policies section and download our SEND Policy for further information.
If you have any questions about our SEND Information Report or would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
