Decision details

CS2-19 - Intention - PROPOSAL TO INCREASE DOWNLAND SCHOOL CAPACITY

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Decision:

Following consultation with officers I give notice that I intend to make the decision set out in the attached report. If you would like to make any representations to me on this issue, please do so by 15th July 2019.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council anticipate an additional 661 EHCPs will be needed in Wiltshire by 2026. Of these children and young people, 220 are likely to need a special school place. A current lack of provision in the south requires 71 ASD & SEMH special school pupils to travel from south to north. This research has led to a pre-consultation with Downland School.

Alternative options considered:

The Council has the option to do nothing, however by not increasing capacity this would not meet the needs of Wiltshire’s Children with SEND because there is a current lack of provision in this area, and demand for places at Downland School.
