Foundation special school

A type of state school which has more freedom than community schools in how it is managed.

It differs from a foundation school, in that it caters for children with special educational needs (SEN).

At foundation special schools the governing body is the employer and admission to the school is through a statement, except in cases of emergency placements, which are described in Chapter 8 of the SEN Code of Practice.

The school’s land and buildings are either owned by the governing body or by a charitable foundation. Funding comes from the LA which also pays for any building work.
