New Pupils Entry Procedures

All pupils at Bracken Hill School have an Education, Health and Care Plan.

Pupil places are allocated through the ICDS team at Nottinghamshire County Council. If a request for a place is to be made, contact with the SEN team must be made.


Prior to entry:

· Tour of the school

· School to contact parents and current placement to arrange a visit

· A senior member of staff visits the current placement and will check assessment information

· Transitions programme set up with parents, current placement and Bracken Hill School


Transitions Programme:

· Tailored to each individual child

· Some pupils will require a longer transition than others

· Transitions will always be arranged with the parents and staff at the current placement

· Transitions visits will be supported by staff from the current placement

· Visits will increase in duration and frequency as the programme progresses


Within seven weeks of entry:

· An assessment of the child’s ability will be carried out

· Pupil interim targets for the year ahead will be set (in line with their EHCP)


Within the first term:

· Parents of new starters will either have a telephone call or a meeting to discuss how pupils have transitioned


Visits to the school for prospective pupils are welcome, however, please be aware that to book a visit your child must either have an EHCP or have confirmation that the application for an EHCP has been successful and is progressing. Please contact the school office to book a viewing.
