Children are accepted at Blossom House only after careful assessment, to ensure that we are the right provision.
At Blossom House, we conduct a comprehensive and thorough assessment process in order to establish if the school is an appropriate educational placement to meet needs of the individual child or young person being assessed. This includes meeting both educational, therapeutic and social needs to ensure the placement is suitable for achieving best outcomes for the child/young person.
Please note, Blossom House School includes several different provisions and each has its own remit and admissions criteria. Please refer to the Blossom House Admissions Criteria within our policy here: POLICY
Usually the initial enquiry is made by parents, but occasionally referrals come from Local Authorities, whether on the parents’ or their own behalf. A child does not need to have an EHCP Education Health Care Plan before being assessed by the school; however parents should be aware that the EHCP process can be protracted and complicated. Some year groups become very oversubscribed & places can only be held open for six months.
In order to assess whether Blossom House might be a suitable provision, we have a two-stage assessment process.
1. Initial Assessments
The Initial Assessments take approximately 45 minutes, and are an opportunity for parents to see around the school and discuss their child and their concerns with a senior member of staff, while one of our Speech and Language Therapists spends time with the child. This is an informal session (playing games or talking) and not a formal assessment. From this, it will usually be possible to tell whether we might be the right provision, and if this is the case we will invite the child back for a more in-depth assessment where they will spend time in the school provision and follow the school timetable with their year group.
2. School Trial Assessment
Your child will be invited to spend time at Blossom House School with his/her age group. The length of the visit will depend on the age of the child as follows:
Two to three days (Primary, Secondary, Post 16 and Blossom House Wimbledon)
One day (reception)
One to two mornings (Foundation Stage).
Occasionally we may ask the child to come for a longer assessment period.
This visit will involve observations made within different contexts and may also involve formalised assessment.
A decision will be made on whether the school can meet the needs of the child, and this outcome will be put in writing.
More detailed information can be found in our admissions policy here: POLICY
Additionally, the admissions pathway also provides more detail regarding the admissions process and timeframes involved here: PATHWAY
Please don’t hesitate to ring the school for more information or to discuss your child with our admissions team.
We do not charge families for an assessment at Blossom House School. As part of the assessment, we will issue an outcome letter detailing if we can or cannot meet needs.
