Children in care
Children in care are given priority for admissions in all Brighton & Hove schools and are usually expected to receive a place at their first preference school for applications within the usual admissions rounds.
We work closely with our Virtual School for Children in Care team, social workers and families to ensure that proper priority is given for their school admission and that at all times in their school careers they are properly supported in their education.
If you want to discuss a school admission for a child in care please contact the school admissions team. Alternatively you may wish to speak to the Virtual School for Children in Care team on 01273 293992 or email@example.com.
