Admission Arrangements


Admission Arrangements Mandeville School adheres to the Admission Criteria for pupils as detailed within the Local Authority’s Admissions Policy Document.

Pupils admitted to Mandeville School will now have an Education Health Care Plan (EHC). The Local Authority will coordinate this plan and has a duty to request advice and information from Health and Social Care as part of the statutory assessment process. The Local Authority must consult the child and the child’s parents/carers throughout the process of assessment and production of an EHC Plan. The outcomes included in the EHC Plan should be realistic and achievable and will be reviewed at the Annual Review Meeting. Pupils are normally considered for admission on completion of a statutory assessment.

Arrangements are made by the LA’s Special Educational Needs and Disability Department (SEND) through the SEND Panel (Tel: 0208 8258700). In exceptional cases it may be necessary for the LA to recommend an assessment/emergency placement for a child at Mandeville School, due to unexpected changes in their health or development, or if a child with a significant learning difficulty moves into the LA. Again, any such placements would be considered and agreed by the SEND Panel.

Occasionally referrals are sent to the school before the pupil is of statutory age, and then, where possible, the school tries to make provision for younger pupils. The school has an agreed Admission Criteria to which we aim to adhere. Parents/Carers are strongly advised to make a preliminary visit to view school and gain additional information relevant to the pupil.

Currently Mandeville School has vacancies for pupils with severe or profound learning difficulties.
