Child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
Primary and secondary aged children
Children without an education and health care plan (EHCP) go to a mainstream school.
This applies if your child is going through an SEN Statutory Assessment and doesn’t have a finalised EHCP.
If your child does not have an EHCP, please apply for a primary or secondary school place online.
Every school has a Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) that you can contact to discuss your child’s needs.
Please contact us if you are not clear what to do.
