At Quay View School, we take referrals via:
- Local Authorities – Education and Care Departments
- Social services
Our admissions process
To be offered a place a Quay View School, the young person must meet the admissions threshold for the Local Authority. Following their decision, we are contacted to offer clear feedback on the suitability of the placement and to arrange visits to establish an initial understanding of the young person’s needs. This means that placements are based on compatibility with the school, the accommodation, peers and the young person’s needs. This ensures high quality decision making regarding education and care placements.
Several factors have to be considered when considering placements, including (not exhaustively) identifying an appropriate peer group in terms of mix of abilities, age, presenting behaviours, level of socio-communication skills, required level of supervision and support, gender and impact on the group dynamic.
