New SEN School Places – Feedback Meeting
There was a good turnout for the feedback meeting on the New SEN School Places consultation at York House on Thursday 10th. A number of parental concerns have led to modifications or clarifications in the proposals, and others we believe have been heard (such as the need for more places at secondary) and although not actioned directly, will no doubt feed into future considerations of expansion of SEN Places. The consultation has now closed and the schools will be working with AfC and other professionals to establish the provisions that are due to open in September 2018.
You can see the slides from the meeting below, followed by more detailed notes.
