4. What arrangements are made for the admission of pupils with disabilities?

In the case of a pupil with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the Local Authority will consult with the school to see whether the school is able to meet the child’s individual needs. If the school is able to meet the child’s needs then a plan to support the child starting at St Agatha’s is agreed. For pupils without an EHCP, children with SEND are afforded the same rights as other children in terms of their admission to our school. Pupils are admitted without reference to aptitude or ability, and governors have a non-discriminatory policy in relation to children with SEND. We would request that upon admission, any prior knowledge of SEN, parental concerns or concerns raised by previous settings are disclosed to the school in order that provision can be planned and put in place to ensure the best possible start.
