Open mornings

Open mornings enable parents and other visitors to tour the provision, view the facilities, meet with staff and enquire about available places and the admissions procedure. In order to minimise disruption to our young people we limit the numbers on each open morning and therefore ask that anyone wishing to visit book their place using the details below. We regret that we cannot accommodate children on these visits.

Admissions procedure

With the support of the placement authority, a pre-placement assessment will be undertaken, following which Prior's Court’s admission panel will make a decision as to the suitability of the placement. If successful a carefully planned transition is undertaken with parents/carers fully involved.
