Admissions

As a generic secondary special school, Southfield provides education for students aged 11 to 19 years with clearly identified special educational needs in the areas of Cognition, Communication & Interaction or Sensory & Physical learning difficulties and disabilities.  The Southfield Grange Trust is the admission authority and places students at Southfield following a request to the Headteacher from a local authority.

The majority of students will be admitted on the basis of an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP), which names Southfield, but from time-to-time the Bradford local authority arranges for students to be placed at the school who are in the process of being assessed for an EHCP.  In order for this procedure to be effective sufficient time must be allowed before transfer to satisfy all parties concerned that the suggested placement is appropriate.
