Stage 1  Consideration of referral papers  

The school receives the prospective pupil's referral papers and considers the application. If a decision is made not to progress with the referral then the referral local authority will be informed in writing and, whenever possible, working collaboratively with other schools an alternative will be suggested.

Stage 3 A placement is offered  

The first term of entry a number of baseline assessments are completed. Regular contact will be made with parents/carers and any concerns regarding the appropriateness of the placement will be highlighted to the parent/carer and referring authority. The first term is probationary/assessment placement. During the probationary/assessment period, if placement is evidently unsuitable, the place will be terminated with written reports forwarded to the referring authority as soon as is practicable. If the assessment period is successful, the Parent/Carer and referring authority will be advised.
