SEND School Admissions

SEND School admissions

We are committed to meeting the needs of all students, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask that parents and carers to discuss their child’s identified needs with the school prior to them starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned for, and implemented. We may request advice from the Local Authority or other agencies to ensure that the school can meet any needs in an appropriate manner.

Full details of the admission arrangements can be found in the Primary and Secondary Admissions brochure produced by Durham County Council and further information can be found in the school admissions policy which can be found here

Applying for a place if your child has an Educational Health Care Plan or Statement of SEN

Young People with an Educational Health Care Plan (Or Statement of Special Educational 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.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact Fyndoune or DCBC  to arrange an appointment with our SENCO Mrs  L. Smith
