Placing requests

Parents of children with additional support needs have a right to make a placing request for ELC and special school provision.

In addition to the grounds of refusal of placing requests set out above, a placing request for an independent special school may be refused if the Council is able to make provision for the additional support needs of the child in another school and where it would not be reasonable, having regard to respective suitability and costs, to place the child in the requested school. A placing request might also be refused where placing the child in the school would breach the presumption of mainstreaming.
