Admission Arrangements for Pupils with SEN or Disabilities
At St Edmundsbury Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, the Governors adhere to the principles of the Equality Act 2010, as laid out and pay particular attention to the way the school operates its admissions procedures,
This school follows the Suffolk County Council Co-ordinated Admissions Policy. Places will be offered to those children with an EHC Needs Assessment that names the school as the appropriate school for the child, even if it is not the catchment school. In making the decision to name a school, parent’s views will be considered carefully by local authority staff.
The best way to find out if this school will meet your child’s needs is to visit the school. Please contact us to arrange an appointment. Parents will be responsible for transporting their child to school if they do not qualify for free or discretionary transport under the Suffolk County Council Home to School Transport Policy.
Please contact SCC for further information: 0845 606 6173.
