Admission Arrangements

As an SEMH Free School our admissions arrangements are different from a standard school or academy. Pupils admitted to the school will have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) in place. Placements at The Pinetree School are available in the following situations

Permanently Excluded Students

Permanently excluded students between year 7 and year 11 may be admitted to The Pinetree School if they are permanently excluded from School upon receipt of a referral from their County Council admissions team.

Children Missing Education

Any Child Missing Education will be admitted to The Pinetree School upon receipt of a completed Referral from the County Council Admissions Team or (in the case of young people who hold a Statement of SEN or EHCP) from the relevant Additional Needs Co-ordinator. Referrals are not accepted from other parties

Admission is subject to a thorough prior assessment to determine placement suitability.
