Admissions

Evergreen Admissions Criteria

Admission to Evergreen School is managed through the local authority, please see ‘Warwickshire’s admissions procedures for SEND pupils’ and the ‘Continuum of provision and admission in Warwickshire’ which can be found as part of the authority’s local offer on the following link:  Warwickshire SEND

  • Pupils attending Evergreen School will be working significantly below expected levels of cognition and learning i.e. currently in year 5 but working at year 1 level.
  • The school is suitable to the child/young person’s age, ability, aptitude and special educational needs
  • Admission is not incompatible with the efficient education and efficient use of resources
  • Attainment levels across the curriculum which over time remain at least one key stage below those of most other learners of the same age, and progress across the curriculum which continues over time to be significantly less than that of other learners with the same starting point, despite relevant and purposeful evidence-based intervention.
  • Performance below the 2nd percentile on a composite score, or below the 1st percentile on a test of specific area, on the British Ability Scales (3rd UK Edition) or the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for children, implemented by an appropriate qualified professional. Where standardised tests are not appropriate, suitably qualified professionals would describe the learner’s difficulties as severe in relation to age norms.
  • Other needs will not be excluding factors in recognition of the scope of the special school offer.
  • Placement will be compatible with the safety of other students

Each referral is considered by an admissions panel, which meets monthly and is attended by a range of professionals including representatives from Warwickshire’s Special Educational Needs Disability Assessment and Review team and a representative from Warwickshire specials schools.

Consideration will always be given to the current profile of the cohorts in the schools and settings and is dependent on school capacity.

If the local authority has offered your child or young person a place at Evergreen School or Evergreen School is named on their Education, Health & Care Plan, then we encourage you to contact the school so we can meet your child/young person and discuss a bespoke transition so they have a successful start at Evergreen. The transition will always include talking to parents, previous setting/school and of course meeting the child or young person.

Visits

If your child or young person has an Education, Health & Care Plan in place and you wish to learn more about the school then we encourage you to look at the school website this includes the virtual tours of both sites.

School Tour information

Prospective Parents & Carers

Due to unprecedented demand, Evergreen School has organised the following tour dates for prospective parents/carers. Priority on the first tour date in April 2022 has been given to prospective parents looking for reception places September 2022 as we are currently full in all other year groups (and hence all timeslots are at the Deansway site). Prospective parents looking for other year groups will have the opportunity to visit during the Summer Term (including at our Brittain Lane site where the majority of our older primary and secondary aged pupils are based as well as our pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties).

Due to the limited number of spaces for each time and date, we will only initially be able to accept one parent or carer (however, please indicate when requesting your date and time if you would like a second space and we will accommodate this if the session isn’t full). Unfortunately, children will not be able to accompany you on the tour due to capacity, however, should your child be offered a place they will be able to see the school and its facilities during their transition programme.

For those that have already received an offer of a place at Evergreen for September 2022, please DO NOT request a visit using this system. You will be contacted separately to organise transition visits during the Summer Term.

Tours will last a maximum of 1 hour.
