Obtaining a place
To obtain a place at Summerwood the young person will require a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP). Parents/Carers and young people are very welcome to visit Summerwood and discuss its potential to provide the Post 16 education and opportunities that are being sought. Summerwood may well have been considered as a possible provider in Annual / EHCP Review discussions, but it will be crucial to alert the young person’s local authority and let them know that you would like a place at Summerwood for your son or daughter. The local authority will guide you as to what to do next.
Summerwood has a panel process where all students put forward by local authorities to panel are considered. There are three scheduled panel meetings throughout the academic year.
