In the SEND Provision section we have added information including how we consult with pupils with SEND at St. Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College. Please access this information from the SEND Provision menu.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We liaise with parents and previous education providers prior to the pupil starting St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College, in order to discuss the identified needs, allowing for the planning and implementation of appropriate intervention. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Full details of the admission arrangements can be found in the Primary and Secondary Admissions brochure produced by Durham County Council. Please consult the admission policy for St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College for further details.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEND
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
If you have any questions about SEND please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
