Proposed Changes to the Special Support Centre Provision at Maidenbower Junior School

Closed 10 Dec 2017

Opened 13 Nov 2017

Results expected 8 Jan 2018

Feedback expected 31 Jan 2018


As part of the implementation of the West Sussex Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Strategy 2016-2019 and a review of existing specialist provision it is proposed to amend the Special Support Centre provision at Maidenbower Junior School to enable provision which is more in line with need and to make best use of available funding.

There is an identified need for additional places for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition. We have considered possible options for meeting this need and believe that altering the designation of the Special Support Centre at Maidenbower Junior School from Additional Learning Needs to Autistic Spectrum Condition will assist in addressing this, by improving the provision available for children with autistic spectrum condition in the north of the county. 

 You can find out more information on the proposal in the document attached below.
