The school will ensure it meets its duties set under the DfE’s ‘School Admissions Code’ by:

  • Not refusing admission for a child thought to be potentially disruptive, or likely to exhibit challenging behaviour, on the grounds that the child is first to be assessed for SEND.
  • Not refusing admission for a child that has named the school in their EHC plan.
  • Considering applications from parents of children who have SEND but do not have an EHC plan.
  • Not refusing admission for a child who has SEND but does not have an EHC plan because the school does not feel able to cater for those needs.
  • Not refusing admission for a child who does not have an EHC plan.
  • Not discriminating against or disadvantaging applicants with SEND.
  • Ensuring policies relating to school uniform and trips do not discourage parents of pupils with SEND from applying for a place.
  • Adopting fair practices and arrangements in accordance with the ‘School Admissions Code’ for the admission of children without an EHC plan.
  • Ensuring the school’s oversubscription arrangements will not disadvantage children with SEND.
  • Ensuring that tests for selection are accessible to children with SEND, with reasonable adjustments made where necessary.
  • The governing body has a duty to comply with LA Fair Access Protocol
