Admissions Criteria

The DfE recognises 38 residential places and an additional 10 day places at MacIntyre School. Hillside, our Registered Children’s Home in Leighton Buzzard offers five of the 38 residential places.

We look for our referrals to have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or a Statement of Special Educational Needs stating they have Severe Learning Disabilities.

In addition to these, the school caters for children and young people with:

  • Complex behavioural needs
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Epilepsy
  • Sensory Impairment
  • Developmental Delay
  • Syndromes associated with the above

Children and young people would be identified as requiring:

  • Small class groups
  • High children and young people / staff ratio
  • Consistent 24 hour curriculum

The nature of the residential houses requires all young people to be able to live in a community setting, i.e. in close proximity to between three and five other young people.

Referral Procedure
