Specialist Centres

If your child has special needs, they can usually get all the support they need at a mainstream school. If they do not have an EHCP then you apply to a school using the school admissions process.

All mainstream schools follow government guidelines about supporting children with special needs, and you can see this information in the local offer or SEN section on their website.
There is also more information on what schools should consider for SEN Support on the Local Offer. If you know your child will need extra support in school contact the SENCO before you apply if possible.
All the mainstream primary and secondary schools are listed on the London Borough of Hounslow website

Mainstream schools with specialist centre

If your child has more complex education or disability needs they may need to go to a school with a specialist centre. This option may be suggested in an education health and care (EHC) plan.

There are a range of Primary and Secondary schools with specialist centres in Hounslow borough for children and young people with a range of needs. Centres are small classes with specially trained staff and resources to support children with specific needs.  

Each centre has criteria for the type of needs they can provide support for. Admission to a specialist centre is managed by the SEN team, speak to your SEN case officer for further information.

Specialist Centres Primary

Each centre has a different level of interaction with the mainstream classes within the school, follow the links to each schools website to see how the centres support the children and level of curriculum.
