13-11-2023 Choosing a Primary School for children with additional needs

Would you like more information on choosing a primary school for your child with additional needs? Our Voice Parent Forum is hosting two Zoom information sessions for parents and carers, in conjunction with Enfield SENDIASS.

These sessions will look at how to choose a primary school for children with additional needs, and expressing your preferences for children who have Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). We will talk about what the process is, how you can get information about primary schools and what to look out for when making decisions. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions, in advance and also as part of the session.

Book your place for Tuesday 7th Nov 10.30 am -12 pm here or for Monday 13th Nov from 1– 2.30 pm here  

See our event flyer here.

If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 you will need to apply for a place for your child to start reception in September 2024. 

If your child has an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) you will need to express your preferences by 30th November 23

If your child does not have an EHCP you will need to apply for a primary school place by 15 January 2024.

This workshop will be particularly useful for parents of children in this age group, but you may also wish to attend if your child is a year or so younger, so you can start thinking about the choice of school early.
