Placements into mainstream schools

Special provision in Swindon - special educational needs (SEN)

A booklet has been designed for parents/carers, head-teachers, teachers, and staff in schools and agencies in the Borough of Swindon.  It is a summary of the in-Borough continuum of provision available for children and young people with special educational needs. The booklet contains descriptions of the current admission criteria for each Special Resourced Provision (SRP) in a mainstream school and the special schools. This will enable parents, professionals and pupils to make informed choices about provision in the Borough.
