Admissions

There are currently 60 places at the Young People’s Academy for pupils and students aged 11-16 with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

For a child to be admitted, the Academy must be named by a Local Authority (LA) in the child’s Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). This generally follows extensive consultation with the Academy. Pupils will be considered for the Academy when it is clear that they will benefit from the provision and that they meet the following criteria:

Applicants will have an EHCP. However, in exceptional circumstances it may be necessary to make an emergency placement. Examples of exceptional cases when it may be necessary to make an emergency placement include:
– the child’s medical circumstances have changed suddenly, causing a rapid and serious deterioration in the child’s health or development
– where a child arriving unexpectedly in the LA exhibits such significant learning difficulties as would normally warrant an EHCP

Applicants will have a range of special educational needs and disabilities, some of which may be complex. This may include one, or a combination of the following:
– Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs
– Autism Spectrum Disorder
– Speech, Language and Social Communication needs
– Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
– Oppositional Defiant Disorder
– Conduct disorder

Parents/carers wishing their child to attend Young People’s Academy should ask their LA to name the Academy in their child’s EHCP.

If you would like to visit our school please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
