Penn Hall School offers high quality education and care for children aged 3 -19 years who have a range of additional needs linked to physical disability, severe learning difficulty, profound and multiple learning difficulty or autism spectrum condition. Penn Hall School is maintained by Wolverhampton City Council and it is through this local authority that children and young people are placed at the school.
As with all special schools, children and young people are admitted to Penn Hall School with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) that names the school . Before an EHCP is issued, the child or young person will have undergone formal assessment. After this multi-professional assessment, parents will receive a plan describing the child’s or young person’s special educational needs and the various elements of special educational, health and social care provision required.
When considering a parent’s preference , the local authority will need to be sure that the school named by the parents can meet the pupil’s special educational needs, and that the placement is consistent with the provision of suitable education to other children and young people already at the school. The local authority will need to be sure that the placement is compatible with the efficient use of available resources. Before reaching its final decision on admission to a special school the local authority will consult with the Headteacher of the school to ensure that all needs can be met.
For further information regarding admission to Penn Hall School , parents should contact The Wolverhampton Special Educational Needs Statutory Assessment and Review Team (SENSTART) on 01902 555961.
