Admission Arrangements

Admission to The Levett School is through the Local Authority who will allocate places through the inclusion panel process or if a child has an EHCP, this can be done via the SEN consultation process. Currently the school is funded to take 90 pupils from Year 2 to 9.

The purpose of such placements is to enable pupils to access their education and therapeutic support to reintegrate back to a mainstream setting to complete their education. In some circumstances, pupils will move on to more permanent, specialist settings. All pupil placements begin with robust assessment and planning procedures which aim to work on an end goal/destination for each, individual pupil.

Doncaster Local Authority will finalise contractual arrangements between the PRU and referring school to include:

  • identification of the school’s key worker for each pupil
  • the involvement of other Children’s Services
  • a schedule of liaison meetings between the key worker and the school
  • entry arrangements, including parental/carer involvement
  • all relevant school records must transfer with the student
  • all relevant school books/coursework
  • entry information for public examination

Schools will ensure that all relevant information on pupils, referred by the LA, is collated and used in the preparation for admission, including:

  • CAF
  • the Care Plan of a Looked After Child
  • an up-to-date PEP for Looked After Children
  • medical / health information
  • identification of any other agency involvement.
  • Parents/carers are actively involved in the whole transitional process from the preparation for admission; throughout the actual prevention placement and during the period of reintegration to the referring school.
  • Statement/ECHP
  • Relevant supporting information from additional professional
