ADMISSIONS TO THE ORCHARD SCHOOL

You can download our full admissions policy using the link below.


Admissions

All pupils who attend The Orchard School will have a Statement of Special Educational Needs / Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC Plans) identifying social, emotional and behavioural difficulties with associated learning needs as their primary need. To arrive at this stage they will have seen a variety of professionals who have investigated the root of the child’s difficulties in learning.

The Local Authority will have deemed that a child may be suitable through a clear assessment and referral process which results in papers being submitted to the school as part of the consultation process. Most pupils referred are appropriate and are then invited for interview providing the school has a suitable place available.

We welcome visits from the child / young person and parents / carers to understand how the school works, meet key people and look around the working environment.

This should be read in conjunction with the Kent County Admissions Criteria for pupils with behaviour and learning difficulties.
