Admissions criteria

Who do we support?

Newbury Manor School is registered to work with children and young people aged 7-19 years with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and moderate to severe learning difficulties and associated complex needs. We are open to referrals from both Local Authorities and private fee paying parents. We have a Tier 4 license with the UK Visa and Immigration Authority, which allows us to consider referrals from outside of the EU.

Newbury Manor School welcomes all young people to visit the school with their parents/carers before offering a place. This gives students the opportunity to spend time in the classroom and/or within our residential area, as well as to meet other pupils and staff. We also strongly encourage visits from commissioning officers.

If, for any reason, the young person is not able to attend the school for an assessment, we can arrange for a member of staff to visit the young person and carry this out off-site.

Our dedicated referrals co-ordinator oversees all visits, as well as collating information from parents and the young person’s current or most recent placements so that we have a 360 degree view of the student’s needs. This information is audited by the Senior Leadership Team and the wider staff team also input into the process as required.

If a young person is being considered for a residential placement, we will also carry out a detailed impact risk assessment before making an offer of a place.

Working closely with stakeholders

Newbury Manor School only offers placements where there is a strong understanding of the needs of the young person, their family/carer and their multi-professional team. Upon receiving a referral, we work closely with all parties involved in a young person’s care to ensure everyone agrees on the needs and outcomes.
