Admissions

While in the Governing Body of The Bishop of Llandaff manages the admissions process of the mainstream section of school, the process for student admission to The Marion Centre differs. While students within The Marion Centre are part of The Bishop of Llandaff, the process of determining places is managed by Cardiff Local Authority, in accordance with the current Special Educational Needs Code of Practice for Wales. All students must have an ASD diagnosis and a Statement of Special Educational Need.  

Once a place at our provision has been agreed and a Statement of Special Educational Need is finalised, staff at the centre will begin to develop a transition programme to support students and parents/carers prior to attending our school. Transition programmes involve Marion Centre staff meeting with parents/carers, staff within the child's current provision to help identify current academic, social, emotional and sensory profile. Prior to admission, students are invited to engage in a series of visits to the centre to gain familiarity, confidence and reduce anxiety.

All transition programmes are conducted in a person-centred way. The use of visual aids including, photos, videos, social stories and documentation is regularly used to help a child process their change of educational placement.
