Along with the documentation required for admission, applicants are requested to share full details of any special educational needs, individual education plans (IEPs) and any Educational Psychologist, Paediatric, or other specialist reports (e.g., Speech and Language or Occupational Therapy) if completed. Sharing educational history with GEMS Wesgreen International School prior to a place being offered is essential so that staff can ensure an appropriate assessment of educational need, educational plan and resourcing is in place. GEMS Wesgreen International School reserves the right to request a psychoeducational assessment in the event that a special educational need should arise during the admission process, as well as, during the students’ academic career within the school. This is essential to ensure the best interest of the student is met. Admission is not conditional on the submission of a medical diagnosis and we have effective transition processes in place for all children.

Students are not refused admission based only on their experience of a special education need or disability (SEND) and we give sibling priority for admission to students who experience SEND. Staff follow the local regulatory guidance and procedures for scenarios where, very rarely, it may not be in the best interests of the child to be placed in WGP. This information will be shared with the local regulator, following expected procedures. However, In the event that information regarding additional needs of a student are withheld upon admission, the school reserves the right review the admission to ensure the best interest of the student are carried out.
