Admissions to Kingsmead School

The Kingsmead School has multiple functions as a school. PRU; Special School and Hospital Medical Provision.

PRU

We cater for students who have been permanently excluded; placed by the Local Authority through the Secondary Placement Panel through a normal admissions process or actively referred by the students school for Alternative Provision.

Permanent Exclusions and Secondary Placement Panel is operated outside of the school and is a responsibility of the Local Authority. They can be contacted via the following email address- IYFA@derby.gov.uk

Special School

All students who attend our Special School have an EHCP and have been placed directly through the Local Authority. This can be done by contacting the Local Authority via the following email address- SENDadmin@derby.gov.uk

Hospital Medical Provision

Applications are made to Secondary Placement Panel for Hospital Medical Provision (behaviourpanel@derby.gov.uk). Referrals can be made by schools or health professionals (consultant or above); however, referrals will be only accepted once both parties have agreed that this is appropriate and realistic for the student. Evidence must be provided by the referring health care professional(s) and should be sent on headed paper to castleadmin@kingsmead.derby.sch.uk
