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.
Visiting the school
All visits are made by prior arrangement with the school. Local Authority staff, social workers, parents and prospective pupils are welcome to visit the school.
Making the decision
A meeting of all parties concerned is convened to make an initial assessment. If appropriate a referral from is completed and a plan of action for the commencement of the school placement is agreed.
