Admission Arrangements

All admissions are arranged by the Inclusion Family Services Team at the Local Authority in discussion and agreement with families, Hillside and the pupil’s current setting.

We welcome pupils to our Assessment Nursery (Squirrel class) from the age of 2½ years. Some pupils join us after they have reached statutory school age, usually from other schools or if the family has moved from another area; they will have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or one will be in process of being prepared for them.
