Admissions Policy

Valley School Admissions Policy – Reviewed 2017

Admissions to Valley Special School are determined by the Local Authority SEN section following consultation with the school.

The children who are admitted into specialist EYFS provision are likely to have already been assessed for an Education, Health and Care plan (EHC)  or to be in the process of doing so. Children admitted into Reception to Year 6 will most likely already have had their Special Educational Needs assessed and have an EHC in place.

Parental involvement in the admissions process is important to us. Parent/Carers of prospective pupils are most welcome to contact the school. Unfortunately,  due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not able to offer tours of school.  We would recommend that you watch the video on our home page to get a feel for the provision we are able to provide at Valley and call us to discuss further how we can meet the needs of your child. 

Appeals over admissions are dealt with by the Local Authority in accordance with the Department for Education School Admission Code 2014.

Admission arrangements to Valley School are made through the SEN Department at the Local Education Authority (LEA) – Tel: 0161 474 2525.
