The LA will work closely with the school so that any decisions on placement for a pupil with an Education Health and Care Plan or Special Needs/Circumstances reflect the individual situation of each child and the school.
New pupils are invited to visit the school with or without a significant adult depending on pupil and family preference.
A further visit to the school may occur before a school place is offered if this is deemed appropriate and a place is available. After a place has been offered and accepted, an induction with the pupil, their family or significant adult will take place. The induction includes a risk assessment, provision of school uniform, completion of the home school agreement, outline of school rules and assessments in literacy and numeracy. Some pupils may start at Beckmead on a reduced timetable that gradually builds in duration when the pupil is successful and they are willing and able to access more time in school.
Please refer to each individual school’s website for further information.
