The governing body has agreed with the Hertfordshire County Admissions Criteria, which does not discriminate against pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.
The school will make every effort to accommodate a pupil's particular needs and will work with external agencies to improve facilities, if needed.
Where necessary, additional preparations will be made for appropriate transition into our school, e.g. by additional nursery visits, meetings with staff members involved in the pupil's care and education, including the SENCO.
The SEND Code of Practice (July 2014) recognises four broad areas of need.
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
- Sensory and/or physical needs

"Pupils with SEND make good progress as a result of well-targeted support, including from teaching assistants. Staff monitor their progress carefully and adjust provision to meet their needs. Several parents commented on the high-quality support their children receive. Consequently, pupils with SEND achieve well from their different starting points."
