Admissions to Saxon Mount are arranged in partnership with the Local Authority.

All pupils who attend Saxon Mount have an Education Health and Care plan (EHCP). If you wish to find out more about Saxon Mount School because your child is undergoing a statutory assessment but does not yet have an EHCP, please ensure that you seek advice from the SEN department at County Hall prior to arranging a visit to the school.

Alternatively, if your child already has an EHCP but is currently on the roll of a mainstream school, please also seek advice from the SEN department at County Hall prior to arranging a visit. If you are unsure of your child’s status with regard to SEN our office staff will try to help identify who would be best placed to help you. We are always happy to offer advice and guidance to prospective parents.

Applications to attend Saxon Mount School are made through the East Sussex Council application process. As a parent of a child or young person with an Educational Health & Care Plan you can state a preference for the school you would like your child to attend and East Sussex Children’s Services will try to meet your wishes. Recommendations made at the Annual Review stage of the EHCP also play an important part in forming the decision made by East Sussex Council.
