The usual procedure for admission is through your child’s local education authority requesting whether we can meet a child’s special educational needs and if we have a place available. The Headteacher will only admit pupils once they have visited the school and met staff. Visits such as this are usually dependent upon local authority consent. Currently the school has pupils from North Yorkshire LA; Stockton-on-Tees LA; Redcar & Cleveland LA; Darlington LA; Middlesbrough LA and Leeds LA.
Once a placement has been agreed, the school in consultation with the parents/carers and local authority will put in place transition arrangements for the pupil to start at school. The school will negotiate directly with the relevant body regarding pupil funding. We admit pupils throughout the school year.
