Special schools in Dorset
All schools are required to be inclusive and most children and young people with SEN attend a mainstream school.
Sometimes a special school or specialist resourced provision might be the best option for your child. You can talk about this with the people supporting your child. Usually, children and young people only attend one of these settings if they have an education, health and care (EHC) plan.
We place children in our own maintained special schools and work with neighbouring authorities in Bournemouth, Poole and Somerset to make sure children and young people are educated in a provision that's both appropriate for their needs and within their wider communities where possible.
