Admissions

The Governing Body manages all mainstream applications to places to The Bishop of Llandaff.  However, all admissions to The Marion Centre are managed by Cardiff Local Authority. 

While students within The Marion Centre are part of school community at The Bishop of Llandaff, the process of determining places is managed centrally and independently of governors, in accordance with the new Additional Learning Needs Code for Wales. All students must have an ASD diagnosis and a Statement of Special Educational Need or Individual Development Plan. 

Once a place at our provision has been agreed and finalised, staff at the centre will begin to develop a transition programme to support students and parent(s)/carer(s) prior to attending our school. Transition programmes involve Marion Centre staff meeting with parents/carers and 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.
