SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

For Consideration of Admissions

Consideration will be given to children in public care and to applicants who can establish particular medical, Special Educational Needs or social grounds relating to their child. Supporting written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional must be provided at the time of application. The definition of Special Educational Needs relates to a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for the child.

Special consideration will be given to children whose mobility support needs require that they access the specialist accommodation provided by a school in a designated “through route” family of schools. Each case will be determined on its merits. Special circumstances may take precedence over any of the numbered criteria above. The allocation of any such places will be determined by the Local Education Officer, in consultation with the Principal.
