Broadmeadow Special School is funded for 75 children with severe learning difficulties and associated disabilities in the age range 3-11 years.
Before a child is admitted to school it is usual for the Local Authority to have conducted a multi-disciplinary assessment to identify a child’s learning difficulty and determine the special education provision the child needs. The outcome of the assessment results in a Statement of Special Educational Need / Education Health Care Plan.
Pupils without Statements of Special Educational Need / Education Health Care Plans may be admitted. This is by agreement with the school, parents, and the team of professionals involved with the child. Children are then offered an assessment place (if available) and the school will then complete the necessary referral for an EHCP.
Some parents may wish to visit the school informally. We are happy to show you around, although we are not able to offer places – this is the responsibility of the Local Authority.
The school has no catchment area and may admit children from all areas of the City of Wolverhampton. Any child who has an EHC plan that names the school must be admitted to the school, providing there are sufficient places available. The school, therefore, does not operate over-subscription criteria.
