School Admissions - Special Educational Needs
The admissions process for children with an Education Health Care Plan is different. More information can be found on the Special Education Needs Assessment page within Derby City Council Admissions section.
School Admissions - Appeals
If your request for a school place is refused, this is usually because the school has received more applications than there are places available. Derby City Council Admissions Team can give you more information on other schools that may have places available.
You can appeal the decision, however please check that your child has met all of the admission criteria before making an appeal.
