Admissions Welburn Hall is a generic special school / college for children and young people aged 8 to 19 years with a wide range of special educational needs.
Pupils are admitted to Welburn Hall in consultation with parents and on the recommendation of the Local Authority (North Yorkshire County Council). Parents have a statutory right to have their own preference on school placement fully considered before a school is named on their EHCP. For more information about Local Authority procedures for placements in special schools, Click Here.
Welburn Hall staff are always available to discuss this with parents as are NYCC SEN Officers and the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service Pupils would usually start the school at the beginning of a new term. We usually try to offer each new pupil opportunities to spend some time in school prior to their full-time admission.
The school is open during the normal North Yorkshire term time dates for 190 days each year. Day and weekly boarding places are agreed as a part of each pupil’s provision.

About Education, Health and Care Plans The EHCP compiles reports from all the agencies involved with a young person into one document. The EHCP travels with the young person potentially up to the age of 25 whilst they are still receiving education. The information in the EHCP determines the level of support that the young person will need.
It will be required by further education organisations, and social care will use it to help determine the level of support they can provide.
The EHCP is reviewed and updated each year at the annual review meeting.
Welburn Hall offers day and boarding places to boys and girls aged between 8-19 years who are identified as having special educational needs. There is a main school, and separate college unit for post 16 students.
