Our school is committed to supporting the additional needs of our intake. However, we are receiving an unprecedented number of requests for placements for  pupils  with EHCP’s.  We are expecting upto 40 pupils with EHCP’s in September 2020, 16 in Y7 alone.  We  work tirelessly  to meet the needs of  pupils with additional needs but this is becoming extremely challenging  due to a lack of physical space, difficulties in recruitment of support staff  and little time with specialist  SEND support services.

We have now reached a point where we feel we have to state that we are not in a position to guarantee that meeting  your child’s needs effectively is tenable.

In comparison to other schools in our locality we are  significantly over capacity.  As such, if your child has additional needs and /or an EHCP, we urge you to visit  several schools before making any decisions or applications on a secondary placement.  On application to The Romsey School, we would expect you to confirm the schools you have visited and the staff with whom you consulted .
