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 http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/send
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 profile of the current profile of the cohorts in the schools and settings.
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.
Evergreen Admissions Criteria

- Parents will have expressed a preference for the school and accepted a place
- 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
