Admissions

All children at Kingfisher have either a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) detailing the following needs:

  • Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD)
  • Severe and Complex Communication and Interaction Disorders (including severe autism) (SLCN or ASD)
  • Severe and Complex Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
  • Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD)

The School is funded to provide 160 places in total for pupils over the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 years (YN – Y6).

Decisions around pupil admissions during the school year have to be carefully considered by the LA and Kingfisher School. The LA is responsible for the efficient use of resources and therefore must have regard to the total number of places available at the school without prejudicing the existing pupils. The school has to ensure an effective transition to an appropriate group, where available.
