Delves Lane Primary School adheres to Durham County Council’s Admission Policy.
Visit the Durham County Council website for information regarding the school admission process and primary school admissions. Delves Lane Nursery children are eligible for places in the Nursery irrespective of whether they will be transferring into our school for their statutory education. To appeal against an admission decision visit: School admissions-appeals.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting, so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the Local Authority or other agencies may be requested to ensure that the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
