Admission for children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan
Where Budmouth Academy is named in a child’s Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the governing body recognises a duty to admit the child to the Academy. The admissions process for children with a Statement or EHCP is administered by the Local Authority.
Applications need to be made to the Local Authority via their website: https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/education-and-training/schools-and-learning/apply-for-a-school-place/apply-for-a-school-place.aspx
There is the opportunity to appeal against a decision not to offer a place. Appeals are heard by an independent panel and their decision is binding on the College. Information can be found at: https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/education-and-training/schools-and-learning/apply-for-a-school-place/appeal-a-school-place-refusal.aspx
Appeals are heard by an independent panel set up by the Local Authority.
