WPCC Special Schools Consultation Surgeries - BOOK NOW!

On 9th January 2019 Wiltshire Council published a statutory notice in respect of the closure of St Nicholas School in Chippenham, Rowdeford School in Rowde, and Larkrise School in Trowbridge, along with the pre-statutory notice regarding the opening of a new special school.

The document also includes the detailed proposals with information such as:-
• Reasons for closure • Pupil numbers and admissions • Provision • Curriculum • Travel • Location • Costs, etc.

From page 9 of the document you can find out about the consultation process, timeline and the ways in which you can contribute your views on the proposals. Click on the following link to view the Statutory Notice/ Consultation Documents

Face-to-face consultation surgeries
There are surgeries being arranged by Wiltshire Council at the three schools (see table below) specifically for parent/carers of their pupils and letters for these will be sent via the schools directly to parent/carers. Please contact Larkrise, St Nicholas and Rowdeford schools to book onto these sessions (WPCC is not handling the bookings for the consultation surgeries being held at the schools).

Sessions at Special Schools for Parent Carers are as follows:-

The WPCC is organising additional surgeries for parent carers. We hope these additional sessions will give an opportunity for parent carers of children who are perhaps:-

  • home educated,
  • too young to attend school,
  • do not attend St. Nicholas, Larkrise or Rowdeford schools,
  • attend a mainstream school or resource base
  • attend a school outside of Wiltshire

to contribute to the discussion on the proposals.

WPCC sessions for parent carers are as follows:-

Each surgery session whether at a special school or WPCC additional surgery will follow the same format; we therefore ask that parents attend only one session (and preferably at the school their child attends if they attend Rowdeford, St. Nicholas or Larkrise) to give as many parents as wish to, the opportunity to participate in a surgery session.

PLEASE NOTE: These sessions are for PARENT CARERS of children/ young people aged 0-25 years with special educational needs and/ or disabilities ONLY
