Admissions for children with an Educational Health Care Plan


Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health Care Plan that names a school will be offered place without using the admission criteria and will count as part of the school’s published admission number.


Stalmine: School Offer

It is recognised that all children may have educational special needs at some time in their primary education. It is the policy of Stalmine Primary School to actively encourage the involvement of staff, parents and pupils in identifying and addressing the needs of any such children as early as possible.

Our  policy is to make full and efficient use of the all staff employed in the school to raise the achievement of all pupils including those with special educational needs.

Mrs Parkinson is the Special Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator and designated Mental Health Lead. 

Special needs are met in an inclusive setting in Stalmine Primary School wherever possible, but withdrawal into smaller teaching groups is also practised. Some individuals may have Education Health and Care Plans in place (previously known as statements).

The Educational Psychologist supports the school to assess children's needs and provide advice. Lancashire's Children's and Family Well Being Service can offer support and advice for children with emotional, social, and mental health difficulties. There are close links with health services, such as speech therapists and occupational health. Advisory teacher input is sought when appropriate.

Stalmine Primary School makes every effort to welcome and accommodate disabled pupils, and to provide appropriate facilities. All pupils are treated equally, regardless of disability, race, gender or religion.
