Admissions

All pupils at Whitehouse have a Graduated Response document including the strategies their mainstream settings have tried to support them in school. During a child’s Whitehouse placement, successful strategies will be added to their Graduated Response to support a successful transition to their next educational setting. Places at Whitehouse are allocated by the local authority’s Fair Access Panel. Many of the children starting at Whitehouse will have had access to Steps to Success Outreach support in their mainstream.

As part of the admissions process, we like to get to know you. This might include a visit to meet your child in their mainstream setting or in the home. We welcome visits to our setting to meet the staff and see our school environment.
