Finton House has a tradition of providing an education for a number of children with known and described special educational needs. The School makes every effort to ensure that reasonable measures are taken to provide accessibility for a range of different special needs.
It should be pointed out that is is not always possible to offer places in a year group if it is full. The application process is the same, and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Siblings of children already at the school are given priority.
Parents are asked to disclose any information about their child’s development which might lead to the need for any additional support at school. The School will request full disclosure of any medical conditions, allergies, learning difficulties and/or disability or emotional/social difficulties. The School will then determine whether the School can meet your child’s needs, using the following criteria:
This will be achieved through: a meeting with parents and tour of the School, sharing of all specialist reports relating to the child, a visit to the child at home or in his/her nursery setting, and if necessary, an assessment by an Educational Psychologist or other professional and a reference from the child’s current school.
