Referrals come in to us from local authorities for children with Social Emotional Mental Health needs (formerly known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties) or an Autistic Spectrum Condition.
The referral process follows a number of stages after initial review, including home and school visits to thoroughly assess the child’s needs, and ensure they are placed appropriately. We have never permanently excluded a pupil from any of our schools.
The child, their parent / carer, and the local authority are all key figures in this process, and a placement will not be made if any of the parties involved do not deem it to be suitable.
If you would like to discuss the needs of a particular child, or have any questions about the referrals process, you can contact our referrals team on:
