How to Apply

How to and who can apply…

Schools can apply for a pupil to attend the AB. They have to complete the online referral form on the Norfolk Schools website: The panel meet once a half term to discuss suitability of placement and to assign places when they are available.

The first point of action would be for the home school and the child’s parents to contact the AB to have a discussion and arrange an observation of the child in their home school from Emma Wyatt (AB lead teacher and SENCo). The home school would need to complete the AB referral form. Please see below the dates for paperwork submission.

If you would like to arrange a visit or for more information regarding the AB please contact Emma Wyatt (AB lead teacher) on 01603 429001 or email

  • Spring 2  – 22.02.23
  • Summer 1 – 19.04.23
