Parents are advised to speak with the head teacher or senior leaders of the school their child attends, before approaching Newbury Independent School. Parents of students with an Education Health Care Plan would need to notify SENAR of their school preference before proceeding. In the case of a young person who is at risk of permanent exclusion, discussions can be arranged with the head teacher of their existing school to arrange a transfer from their school to Newbury Independent School.
