Mainstream schools with specialist provision                                                           

Most children in Enfield will be supported in a mainstream school with universal or targeted services. If that is not possible, they may have the option to attend an additionally resourced school to support pupils with SEND. Additionally resourced provision promotes inclusion and increases our capacity to meet the needs of pupils with SEND. Each provision can cater for eight to ten pupils and the SEN panel will consider whether it is appropriate for your child to attend.

The following schools are funded to provide additionally resourced provisions:

Special schools
