Detailed notes regarding the Wigan Council Admissions Policy for special schools is available from the Local Authority. Briefly the following explains the procedures:
A school or nursery may have a concern that a child has additional needs that cannot be best met within a mainstream setting. A request may be made that an Educational Psychologist has input with assessing the child. Once a recommendation is made then the Special Educational Needs & Disability Team at Wigan Council will may request a place at Rowan Tree Primary School. A visit to school can be arranged for parents / carers. All pupils currently attending Rowan Tree Primary School have a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health Care Plan. Other schools may also be recommended and parents / carers may visit other schools before indicating their preference.
In year admissions are also managed by the Local Authority.
