Assessment Centre

Welcome to Wrexham Assessment Centre

What do we do?


The Assessment Centre is a highly specialised resource centre that provides placements for 3-7 year olds.


The Centre assesses children's additional learning needs whilst developing their skills through a suitably differentiated Foundation Phase Curriculum. Most children remain in the Assessment Centre for a short period of time only, depending on the individual needs of the child. Some children attend on a part-time basis. The aim of the Assessment Centre is to identify children’s individual needs and identify educational provision to meet those needs.

The centre works very closely with parents and other professionals/agencies that are providing support for a child, for example Speech and Laguage Therapy Services, Physiotherapy Services, Pre-School Development Team etc..


The centre provides advice and support to other schools. The staff also work in partnership with teachers from other schools to facilitate children’s inclusion into their local school if appropriate. Other children move on to designated placements usually attached to mainstream schools elsewhere in Wrexham. Occasionally, children will require more specialised placement following their period of assessment.

A warm welcome back to everyone after the Easter break. I hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and were able to enjoy family time and get out and about to do fun things.

We have lots of exciting things planned for the Summer Term, our first topic is based on the Science and Technology Area of Learning Experience and we will be exploring 'What is Summer?'

Please look out for Seesaw messages, Google Classroom and emails from school, we will continue to share information with you about all aspects of school life. We will continue to welcome parents back into school as we began to do at the end of the Spring and we look forward to seeing you all in person.


Thank you

Mrs Andrews
