Fox Grove School


Fox Grove School Statement of Provision  

Introductory statement

Fox Grove School is a mixed special school for children aged 4-19. Typically pupils will be taught in small classes of 6 to 9. Additional flexible teaching spaces for our most complex and high need learners will be planned to enable us to plan highly individual provision for those unable to cope full time in a classroom shared with others. The school is designed to meet the needs of pupils with significant barriers to learning, such as autism with learning difficulties, medical issues or speech, language and communication needs.


Admissions to the School

Fox Grove School is a special school which provides 152 places for children of both sexes in the age range 4-19 with Complex, Social and Communication Needs (CSCN).

For a child to be admitted, the school must be named, by a local authority, in the child’s education health and care plan (‘EHCP’).

Parents wishing their children to benefit from our provision should ask their local authority to name our school in their child’s EHCP.

A local authority can also refer a child to the school* to be assessed for an EHCP plan or following a change in the child’s circumstances for his or her needs to be assessed or reassessed. Any assessment should be completed within the 20 weeks set out in the SEND Code.

Children being assessed for an EHCP will be dual registered and return, full time, to their mainstream school if the LA decides not to issue an EHCP.
