Admission to the School

Admissions to Step by Step are made through the Special Educational Needs department of each child’s Local Authority.  We would encourage all families that are interested in a placement at Step By Step to visit the school and look at the provision we offer, once we have agreed that we would be able to meet your child’s needs. We work in partnership with our families and are able to explain in more detail what and how we teach when you visit.

The school hosts tours for prospective parents on selected dates throughout the year.  Please see our Information page for current dates.
