Due to high demand, we are currently prioritising visits for parents of children who we have received a consultation for. 

If a parent wishes to apply for a place for their child in the Woodlark Autism Provision the procedure is as follows:

They should make their preference known at their child’s annual review meeting.
The child’s reports will be sent by Lambeth SEND to the Head of Woodlark Autism Provision for consultation.
The Head of Woodlark Autism Provision will send a response to Lambeth SEND within the specified period, stating whether or not we can meet their child’s needs.
As part of the assessment process the Head of Woodlark Autism Provision will arrange to visit the child in their current setting.
If we feel we can meet the child’s needs and a place is available we will offer a place.
If there are no places available we will offer to keep the child on a referrals list until a place becomes available.
