We know that during these difficult times parents of children with ASD diagnosis or tendencies in particular are struggling. This school page has a lot of useful information.
This booklet is also really useful.

When new children join our school we gather as much information as possible. If a new pupil has SEN we ensure we are aware of their requirements, we work with previous schools and parents to find out how best to meet the child's needs. If a child has a physical disability we would ensure that we could meet needs and look at our accessibility plan and review any aspects as required to ensure the pupil could both physically access the site and have equality in terms of access to the curriculum.
