 Special needs children are allocated places to the school in two separate and distinct ways:

Those pupils with an EHCPs have a separate admissions procedure overseen by Bury’s SEN team. The local authority will approach the school and request that the school consider if they can meet the child’s needs.

Those pupils who have SEND but do not have a statement or EHC plan are admitted via the normal school admissions criteria. No pupil will be refused admission to school on the basis of his or her special educational need. In line with the SEN and Disability Act we will not discriminate against disabled children and we will take all reasonable steps to provide effective educational provision. (Please see school’s Admissions Policy and SEND Policy).

Sports Funding

Primary Schools’ Sports Funding

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This means that in 2017-2018 we received £18,470.  Please find a breakdown of what we spent sports funding on in 2017-18.
