Advice for parents

School placement enquiries

Does your child have an EHCP?

  • No; you will need to enquire at the child’s school to begin the process of an EHCP. This is something your school SENCO can support with.
  • Yes; during an EHCP review, you can request a school placement change.

As a parent you can request an interim review at any point to discuss your child’s placement. This can be done through your school SENCO or by contacting the local authority SEN support team.

The only way we accept pupils into the school is through the consultation process, organised by Derbyshire County Council SEN team. As a school we advise the local authority as to whether we can meet the needs of the child; the local authority make the decision as to where the best placement would be for the pupil.
