As a Local authority school we work closely with the Statutory Assessment and Review Team (SEND 0 – 25 service)
We are a school for pupils with severe learning difficulties and challenging behaviours. We have small class groups, a modified curriculum and use of some specialist teaching techniques. Prior to admission the school nursing may liaise with the appropriate health professionals should your child have medical and care needs.
A copy of the School’s Aims and Visions are available on our website.
If you feel that Reynalds Cross would be the correct place for your child then we would hope to be able to give you a tour, conducted by Family Support, we would always request a copy of the EHCP to ensure that in theory we would be the right setting. After this any requests for a place should be made in the first instance via the child’s feeder school or by the parents themselves directly to Solihull Local Authority (START team), included in this process will be a recent EHCP and any supporting relevant documents. Please note that the Local Authority manages both the admissions process and appeal arrangements.
This process varies in length and the ultimate decision on placement will be made by the Local Authority following consultation with individual schools. If your child has successfully been allocated a place at Reynalds Cross, you will be notified by the Local Authority and the school will contact you directly to arrange a process of transition, depending on the proposed start date (in some cases this may be for the following academic school year).
