Who is responsible for approving SEND requests?

Modified on Sun, 04 Sep 2022 at 01:51 PM

Each senior school is responsible for checking the SEND requests for applicants. The senior school will need to check both the description of the access arrangements and if extra time is required.

If the senior school agrees that 25% extra time should be added to the tests, then no further action is required. The 25% extra time will be built into the applicant record so that when they login to the tests, it is automatically applied.

If the senior school does not agree with the request for 25% extra time (or any other access arrangement), they will need to begin an appeal process.

If there is a situation where more than one senior school has been applied to, and there is disagreement between the schools on the SEND status, ISEB will mediate between the schools to find the best solution for the pupil.
