MARKETPLACE

We Have A Very Talented & Creative Staff Team
Here at Bright Futures School, we have a very talented and creative staff team, who work hard to personalise all sessions for pupils using many different approaches to experiential learning. All pupils have a weekly art & craft / design session where they are guided and supported by staff, often producing amazing works of art.

Over the next few months we will be advertising for sale items that the pupils have made or upcycled. In addition, we will take on commissions for projects- please email alison@brightfuturesschool.co.uk for details. All monies raised will go to FBFS.

Lucy, Grace and Oliver have recently been inspired by parent Mechel, to create some fantastic earrings which will be on sale at our open afternoon.

CONTACT WELCOME

We welcome informal contact from parents and professionals and we encourage visits to the school before making any decision to apply for a place at the school.  Requests for placements can be made by a parent or an LA, but the procedure outlined below must be followed.

Any Egress requests from LAs need to be sent to info@brightfuturesautism.com. If they are sent to a different address, they may not be looked at.

Our admissions procedure

  1. School managers will review a child’s EHC plan and supporting documents.
  2. Parents or the LA make an appointment to bring the prospective pupil to school for an observation assessment in order for school managers to further assess the suitability of the pupil.
  3. In some circumstances, a brief assessment placement may also be needed where the child spends time in school to allow a specialised assessment of whether our school could meet needs.

All our places are now allocated for academic years Sept 2021 and September 2022 but we do have a waiting list for pupils to fill places vacated by our older pupils from September 2023 onwards.

If the above procedure is followed and BFS managers are of the view that the school can meet needs and the education of the prospective pupil is compatible with the education of current pupils, places are allocated on the basis of whichever family gains agreement from their LA to fund the place first. In some circumstances, a place may be held open for a prospective pupil for a short time to allow an LA to make a decision but this is at the discretion of school managers.

Fees are paid to Bright Futures School Limited by the Local Authority. We are not able to consider private funding.
