Taster Day and Offer of a Place

A mutually agreed day will be arranged for the child to attend the school. During the Taster Day the child will have the opportunity to experience a day at Kingswood House and meet the peer group of the class. During this visit, the SENco will meet with the child on 1:1 basis to talk and do a few informal tests to assess the level of performance. The Headmaster will contact the parents after all feedback has been gathered in order to make a fair decision, based upon a range of evidence. A decision will always be made in the best interests of the child. If a pupil satisfies our entry criteria, a place is available and a satisfactory reference from the pupil’s current school received, then an offer will be made. Written confirmation will be sent – and once accepted – full joining details will follow.
