Baston House School accepts referrals from parents and local authorities. We encourage parents to engage in a dialogue with their local authority and make a joint application for a place at the school.
Typically, we receive referrals from local authorities once an EHCP has been agreed. Upon receiving the relevant reports, the head teacher and relevant staff will determine when an initial visit can be arranged to the school for the prospective pupil and parents/carers.
Following this initial visit the assessment team may decide that the provision at Baston House School cannot meet the needs of the child. If the assessment team feel that needs may be met, an additional visit will be offered. The nature and duration of this visit will be tailored to the needs of each child. We would aim to provide prospective pupils with a taste of life at Baston House School.
At the end of this process, if a pupil is accepted an offer letter will then be sent to the relevant parties with possible starting dates and fees. Within the first 12 weeks of the child starting at the school, we will arrange for a post admission review to be held. At this meeting, the placement will be discussed and any amendments to the provision agreed.
