- Children’s support is provided by specialist staff from Wakefield Inclusion and SEND Support Service (WISENDSS).
- They specialise in social, emotional and mental health needs as well as SEND more broadly. The staff are managed by the WISENDSS specialist leadership team.
- Typically, parents request a resource place via an EHCP Annual Review (or early annual review).
- Admission is open only to children in school years Reception to Y5.
- Admission to the mainstream school is not a route to accessing the resource. This is because the route to a placement in the resource can only be via a student’s EHCP.
Children move on to other appropriate schools. This is may be at the end of Y6. If a child is ready, it may be sooner.
The next school may be a:
- Local mainstream school
- Specialist SEN school
