All admissions into our school are by referral only. Mainstream schools are able to refer pupils to Meadow Park and the Local Authority can refer pupils also. We take pupils all year round, but tend to start any new pupils at the beginning of a new half term. Some pupils will remain on the roll of the school they have come from (dual registration), until their needs are assessed and a decision is reached about whether it is appropriate for them to return to their original school. If and when pupils are ready to return to mainstream school, then a careful transition plan will be drawn up. If a pupil needs to move from Meadow Park into a more specialist setting, then we will do all the necessary referrals to the Local Authority’s decision makers in order to a secure a place.
