Referrals

We want everyone to be as happy as possible from their very first day at Wilsic Hall School. We also take planning for the future, after leaving school, very seriously.

You are more than welcome to visit the school to find out more and ask any questions. Further information is available for families, carers and professionals in our Statement of Purpose which is available upon request.

Referrals are accepted from the authority that will fund the placement. The authority will be asked to send through relevant information which will be reviewed to ensure that Wilsic Hall School may be in a position to positively address the needs of the referred young person.

Young people referred to Wilsic Hall School must have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and be assessed in person before admission, to ascertain whether their needs can be met by the provision.

This Pre-admission Assessment is carried out by one of the assessment teams from our schools and children’s services and can include members of our clinical, care management and education teams. They will arrange to meet the young person and as many people centrally involved in their lives and direct care and education as possible to assess their needs. This is the start of the child-centred planning process that ensures each young person is treated as an individual.

If it is felt that Wilsic Hall School is the best option for the young person, the authority will be informed and a contact written. Hesley Group primarily uses the National Schools Contract (NASS) for placements within our schools and children's services. Information on what is /is not provided within our standard fee is issued as an appendix with the contract. 
 
Emergency placements
In emergency situations we aim to be flexible and responsive and will tailor our admission process to reflect the needs of each young person.
