Referral Details

It is usually necessary to carry out a detailed investigation to find out exactly what a child's special educational needs are and what extra help they may need before a special school place is considered. This process is called a Education, Health and Care assessment.

It is only necessary if the child's school or education setting cannot provide all the help that a child needs, or if a child is identified as having severe disabilities at a very early age.

A parent, school or education setting can ask the local authority to carry out a statutory assessment. The local authority will consider information about the child's progress at school, advice from other professionals who support them and the parents views.

Find further information on the Education, Health and Care assessment.

Additional Languages
All special schools and units have access to full interpreting and translation services.
