Students with SEND are allocated places in two separate & distinct ways:
Those pupils with statements or EHC plans have a separate admissions procedure overseen by Southwark’s SEN team. Applications for children with special needs or with a disability will be treated fairly.
Those pupils who have SEND but do not have a statement or EHC plan are admitted via the normal school admissions criteria. Detailed information and guidance of how to apply for a place at Friars both if your child has an EHC plan or statement of special educational needs, or if s/he has special needs but does not have a statement, can be found on the following link: http://www.southwark.gov.uk/schooladmissions
Any Special Needs that are identified on admission are discussed with parents allowing the school to provide support to and put into place support mechanisms to cater for the child’s Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
