Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) is the Admissions Authority for The Meadows School. All admissions to The Meadows School are as a result of SMBC determining that this is the most appropriate educational provision. Students are accepted who have a Education & Health Care Plan (EHCP)/Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) agreed by SMBC which specifies Complex, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD).

Parents/guardians/carers involved with the process of statementing will have had the opportunity to visit the school prior to their child being admitted. Students are accepted into The Meadows School throughout the year.

We provide education for pupils deemed to have the following:

  • Complex, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties and Autism
  • Profound and Multiple Difficulties and Autism
  • Profound/Severe Learning Difficulties and Autism
  • Severe Learning Difficulties with Physical and Sensory Disabilities
  • Severe Learning Difficulties

The school is officially designated for 140 pupils on roll plus Sixth Form. Inclusion or admission to The Meadows School’s Sixth Form provision will be arranged with parents/guardians/carers and the school/SMBC through the Transitional and EHCP/Annual Review Processes with an agreement by the SMBC Special Educational Needs Service.
