Update regarding proposed changes to regulations for appeals in 2020 as a result of COVID-19:
Please note that subject to parliamentary approval, the DfE’s new regulations for appeals, which will be in force until 31 January 2021, will if passed:
- Disapply the requirement that appeals panels must be held in person.
- Give flexibility for panel hearings to take place either in person, by telephone, by video conference, or through a paper-based appeal where all parties can make representations in writing.
- Relax the rules to make it permissible for panels to continue with and conclude appeals as a panel of two if one of the three panel members withdraws temporarily or permanently.
- Amend the deadlines relating to appeals for the time that the new regulations are in force – any new or revised deadlines must be reasonable and at least 28 days from the date a notification of refusal of a school place was received by the appellant.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN
Ingleton C of E Primary School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavour to support every pupil. We would love you to consider our school and we aim to meet the needs of all the children in our care.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
If you would like to discuss moving a child to our school please contact Mrs Karen Whitaker (SENCO / Head teacher). As a school we aim to do the very best in order to make all children feel welcomed and included during transition.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
