Mackenzie Thorpe Centre

The Mackenzie Thorpe Centre is an independent specialist school based in South Bank, Redcar and Cleveland for pupils aged 5-19


Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodiverse people to fulfil their potential in life.

This policy is to ensure that all schools settings within North East Autism Society admits, as far as possible those pupils whose special education needs can met effectively and in doing so ensure progress in all aspects of their development.

The Admissions Policy is relevant to all trustees, staff, parents, pupils, and local authority representatives who are involved in the admission of a pupil to the school. The school will work in partnership with local authorities and parent(s)/carers(s) to assess the suitability of pupils for an educational placement at the school. The school will ensure that each individual referral is dealt with efficiently and within the required timescales to provide a transparent, fair, effective and efficient process.

This policy will promote the equal rights of all pupils regardless of disability, ethnic background, language, culture, faith, sexual orientation, and gender. We will ensure that any individual who uses our services or who wants to access our services is treated with the utmost respect and dignity.

(The specific policy relating to the promotion and protection of equal opportunities is available from our “Equality andDiversity Policy”)
