All children who join Springwell will have either a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan. Springwell is a school for primary aged children with complex learning difficulties. Whilst this is the primary area of need many children also have associated other needs or conditions and with varying needs of complexity such as:
• Speech and language disorder, impairment or delay
• Physical disabilities
• Autistic Spectrum Disorders
• Hearing impairment
• Visual impairment
• Behavioural difficulties
All admissions are agreed and directed by Southampton City Council. On receiving a request for admission from the local education authority, the school considers the information and details very carefully before a place is agreed.
Once a place has been offered, parents are asked to meet with the class teacher to share information about their child and complete the schools forms. A start date is agreed and a period of transition and possible part time placement is arranged in line with the individual child’s circumstances and needs. All placements are reviewed on an annual basis through the child’s Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan.
