All pupils are referred through the Birmingham LA Special Education Needs Assessment and Review (SENAR).
All pupils therefore have the support of a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan (E.H.C.P).
If there is space available, the Headteacher or Deputy will review a request for a place at Skilts. Either the Deputy and/or the Parent Support Advisor will visit the child at school and/or at home to see the child in a familiar setting, gather or give further information.
This process is carried out over a period of time ensuring visits to the school by parents/carers and the pupil with the support of any outside agencies that are involved.
This ensures that before a pupil begins at Skilts, both parent/carers and pupil have full involvement of the placement process and have a clear understanding of Skilts and the expectations and opportunities on offer.
