Lots of families want their children to join us, here is some information about how the admissions process works at Newfield.
At Newfield School we are very pleased to receive guests for both informal visits and professional training opportunities.
Visits with a view to requesting a place should be directed through Blackburn with Darwen Children’s Services Department
The Local Education Authority is the admissions officer for Newfield School and placement at the school must be agreed with them. All pupils who attend Newfield School are required to have an Education, Health and Care Plan EHCP.
The following are available in school:
- ‘without prejudice visits’ - visit by the parents and child to the school, with no expectation of admission on either side at this stage,
- Pupil Induction visits (See New Pupil Induction)
