Our referral process is simple.

The referral process for young people attending Running Deer School is as follows for 2018-2019:

  1. Initial enquiry received by Running Deer School.
  2. Arrangements made for a pre-referral, on-site visit to Running Deer.
  3. Following a successful pre-referral visit to Running Deer, an application form and accompanying risk assessment will need to be completed and returned.
  4. On receipt of a completed application, potential students will be invited to attend a more formal visit where their individual needs and desired outcomes will be discussed.
  5. Once the application is accepted and funding has been confirmed a start date will be agreed.

Running Deer School accepts applications all year around.
