Admissions are by referral through the Selby Collaborative or the Local Authority. Referrals are made by schools or may be made through an Educational Social Worker if a student is from out of area. We offer both Statutory and Discretionary places. Places are offered on an agreed criteria by the Selby Collaborative.
Statutory placements can be part or full time, a bespoke programme of study and experience for pupils:
• who have been Permanently Excluded
• medical pupils who cannot access full-time mainstream education
• involved with the Youth Justice Service
• directed to us by the Local Authority
A Statutory pupil in Year 11 is likely to complete the year with us and take external, national examinations at our school.
Discretionary pupils can be supported by us on bespoke programmes of study usually up to three days per week for KS3 and longer for KS4.
Parents can access admission arrangements from the school office.
Our SENCo is Mrs Jayne Pool.
She can be contacted via the school either by telephone 01609 533951 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rubicon Centre School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including The Rubicon Centre School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available publicly.
