The Children and Families Act 2014 gives parents and young people the right to express a preference for approved independent specialist provision when their EHC plan is being agreed and completed. Under section 38 of the Act, if an EHC plan names a maintained school or academy, FE college, non-maintained special school or approved Section 41 independent special institution, the local authority must secure a place at that institution and the institution must admit the pupil or student and a place is available.


Click on our Local Offer page for more information on the local offer and links to useful sites providing further help and advice.


Referrals and admissions can occur throughout the year and at any age. Local Authorities permission and funding must be granted in order for the pupil to enrol.


The Local Authority may inquire or apply formally by emailing referrals@3dimensionscare.co.uk


Family members should use the above contact details to make initial contact and visit our Parents and Family page for further information.


3 Dimensions need to be able to assess whether the school is able to meet the child’s needs. This requires us to assess the needs outlined within the Young Person's Statement of Special Educational Needs and or EHC plan and through assessing any additional needs by speaking to parents and carers, as well as meeting the child.


This is to ensure that the child's social, health and welfare needs can also be met appropriately. For this, we request therapist reports as well as opportunities to meet the young person.
