Special Schools Consultation Update - 1st July 2019

Secretary of State Consents to Wiltshire Council Publishing Northern Wiltshire Special School Proposal

The Secretary of State has granted Wiltshire Council consent to publish the proposals to establish a new community maintained special school. The plan is to amalgamate Larkrise, St Nicholas and Rowdeford schools into one new school, operating across the existing three sites, with a single leadership team by 2021. The plan also involves a £32 million new building on the existing Rowdeford site to increase capacity for SEND students with complex needs. All three sites will stay open. The four week consultation will start in September 2019 after the summer holiday, and we will provide details of the arrangements as soon as these have been agreed.

In the coming years when most of the new places are available there will be a further consultation about the appropriate number of sites required in light of demand.

See below for the timeline Wiltshire Council has produced to try to describe the process over the next few years. We are currently at stage 1 on the timeline.
