Statement of Provision

Introductory statement

Cleeve Meadow School is a special free school which provides highly specialised education for students who have moderate learning difficulties with associated additional needs including Autism, ADHD, speech, language and communication difficulties, and sensory impairments.

The school is particularly distinctive from existing local provision as it will work in dual partnership with its co-located mainstream school, Cleeve Park, wherever possible to maximise inclusivity of SEN students to mainstream education and providing access to mainstream teaching and shared facilities.

Admissions to the School

Cleeve Meadow School is a special school which provides 120 places for children of both sexes in the age range 11-19 with moderate learning difficulties.

For a child to be admitted, the school must be named, by a local authority, in the child’s education health and care plan (EHCP).

Parents wishing their children to benefit from our provision should ask their local authority to name our school in their child’s EHCP.

A local authority can also refer a child to the school to be assessed for an EHCP plan or following a change in the child’s circumstances for his or her needs to be assessed or reassessed. Any assessment should be completed within the 20 weeks set out in the SEND Code.

Children being assessed for an EHCP will be dual registered and return, full time, to their mainstream school if the LA decides not to issue an EHCP.
