Summer Holiday – Telephone Number For COVID Contact - 07843858769

If any child tests positive for COVID-19 over the Summer Holidays, please can we ask that you contact us on 07843858769 so that we can support you and, where appropriate, inform other members of the school community.


The telephone will be checked regularly so please leave a message giving all details if the phone is not answered when you ring.  Please can you also give a contact number which we can call you back on.


It is important that you let us know as quickly as possible.  Thank you.


We very much hope that no children will test positive for COVID-19 over the Summer but we want to be fully prepared if this does happen.


Take care; keep safe!




The school places children at the school after full consultation from the Special Educational Needs Department of Local Authorities.

As a Southampton Special School most children come from the City but there are also currently a number of other children form other Local Authorities.

The school offers a successful placement to a child once all relevant paperwork (EHC plans/Statements and related documents) have been reviewed by the range of professionals and departments within the school. The school will only offer a placement to a child should we believe we can meet all needs as reflected in the statutory documents and should we have a relevant peer group in the school as well as making sure that the child will not have a detrimental effect on the educational provision for other young people currently at the school

Once a placement has been offered we will await confirmation from the corresponding Local Authority to proceed with the admission. Once formally agreed the school will then contact the family and appropriate transitional work will be put into place and visits, meetings and dates will be agreed collectively.

As you may imagine each child will require an individualised, bespoke transitional arrangement and this will be fully discussed with the family. Once agreed a child’s transport arrangement to the school will be set up through coordination from the corresponding LA transport division and the school Administration Manager, Jacquie Kier
