We have links with a number of provisions that are not within Kirklees, such as those in neighbouring council areas (mainly Leeds, Calderdale, Wakefield and Bradford). Each of these councils has a local offer page which details what special schools they have (all links open in a new window).
Kirklees will also sometimes use independent specialist settings. Details of these schools can be found in the schools directory area (opens in new window). If you are considering one of these settings, then it is advisable to speak with SENDACT (opens in a new window) about this. Please note, in order to attend one of these settings the child or young person must have an EHCP.
The Children’s and Families Act 2014 (opens in a new windows) states that councils need to use approved schools. These schools have been approved under section 41 of this act and a list of all approved schools is published by the government, this can be found in the Section 41 Approved providers list (opens in new window).
Natspec can also provide a list of approved schools and can search by map, this can be found on the Natspec website (opens in new window).
C&K Careers can also provide advice on what independent settings are available, contact details can be found on the C&K Careers information page (opens in new window).
