Admissions and Arrangements for the Admission of Disabled Pupils
Finstall First School follows the Admissions Policy laid down and as administered by the Local Authority (Worcestershire).
We are always pleased to meet new parents in person and show them around our School. Please telephone the School Office on 01527 872938 to arrange this. Parents of children with disabilities or special educational needs may wish to meet our SENCO prior to applying for a place. Our SENCO, Mrs Harrison, will be happy to meet with you and we will always do everything reasonably possible to meet your child's specific needs. You will always be welcomed and we can also advise you on the application process if needed.
However, please be aware that all admissions are coordinated through the Local Authority. As far as possible, Worcestershire’s Admissions Team will try to meet parental preferences for schools but it is not always possible to do so. Places in Schools are limited by the physical space in the School. Finstall First School has an admission limit of 60 children per year group. For further information on admissions, please use the links below to download a copy of our most recent Admissions Policy, to find the latest information from Worcestershire School Admissions and to make your application online.
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 defines a disabled person as one who “has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.”
Most children with Special Educational Needs will not be disabled within the meaning of the Act. The admission of pupils with disabilities is considered in the first instance in the same way as non-disabled pupils. Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility. It is the Governors' policy to accommodate pupils with disabilities should parents wish and individual needs are planned for, to prevent any pupils being treated less favourably than other pupils. In practice we make reasonable adjustments to classroom and extra-curricular activities, including human and physical resources, to ensure the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
