The process of Access Arrangements (provisions for adjustments such as extra time etc during the assessments) runs alongside the process of Registration. If you feel your child will qualify* (please see below for a definition) for Access Arrangements in the 2018/2019 cycle you can use the Guidance Notes below (from the 20172018 cycle) as a guide for what to expect. These will be updated prior to the commencement of the new cycle.
The application form for Access Arrangements for 2018/2019 will be available along with the Registration Form at the end of April 2018.
*“Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 a person is considered to have a disability if he/she has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term affect on his/her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. This may also apply to children with a learning disability.” If your child falls under this definition, or does not have English / Irish as their first language (and has spent less than 3 full years in the UK/Ireland) you should complete an Access Application Form.
