Parents wishing to consider Knightsfield School as a placement for their child should first contact the school to arrange a visit. This visit will give parents an opportunity to look around the school, allowing them to see students at work and to ask questions about the school. If possible, parents should bring their child with them on the visit.
Parents who would like their child to be considered for a place, should then arrange an assessment visit where their child would spend a day at the school. He or she would be observed working with other students in lessons, appropriate for their age. This would enable teachers to assess whether the school can meet their needs, with particular emphasis on communication needs.
Once this assessment has taken place, Knightsfield will notify parents if we can meet their child’s needs. They should then contact their Local Education Authority to formally request a place. Requests for placements for non-Hertfordshire children should be made by the Authority directly to the Headteacher. Placements for Hertfordshire children will be considered by Hertfordshireʼs SEN panel.
