The Local Authority’s Special Needs panel, taking into account a child’s statement of special educational needs, the Code of Practice, parental preference and the views of the Headteacher and governors, make decisions regarding the placement of pupils to Clarendon.
Pupils due to begin in September will usually be invited to a number of transition days in June and July to meet their new classmates and teachers. There are usually between nine and 13 pupils in each class, though we also have three specialist classes for six to eight pupils with more complex needs and that require a higher staff ratio.
"I warmly encourage you to visit us, with your child, to see what we have to offer and to speak with me, my colleagues and especially the pupils at Clarendon"
I do hope that you will find the information on this website useful, and encourage you to visit us. We hold regular open mornings when we will be happy to show you around - dates for these can be found on the calendar of events in the news and events section.
It is important that you feel right about the school you choose for your child and this is a very important and personal decision. We respect that but we are sure that when you get to know us you will want your child to be part of our safe, stimulating, caring and exciting world.
"Why I chose Clarendon – “I visited a total of 4 schools for my son Michael. On my visit to Clarendon, I knew straight away this was the school for him. The school offered such a broad and personalised curriculum and high level of specialist care and support, and the staff were all so friendly and helpful, and the children so happy. Since starting at Clarendon, Michael has shown great progress in terms of confidence, independence and his behaviour"
