Special Educational Needs School Places Consultation

A number of BCP schools are part of a programme of important school Significant Changes being consulted on by BCP Council. The changes concern adding further local places for pupils who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities. Therefore it is likely the proposals will have an impact on families in all BCP Wards. A link to the consultation website proposals is included below.

The consultations are public and anyone is welcome to submit views and comments on the proposed changes. In addition, there are specific stakeholders whose views and comments are sought. These are:

  • Families of all pupils who attend the schools that are the subjects of proposed changes, (Winchelsea School, Linwood School, Somerford School)
  • Families of all pupils of Old Town Infant School and Nursery
  • Families of all pupils of Canford Heath Junior School
  • Families of all pupils of Heathlands School
  • The Governing Body for Winchelsea School, Linwood School, Somerford School, Old Town Infant School and Nursery, Canford Heath Junior School, Heathlands School.
  • School staff at Winchelsea School, Linwood School, Somerford School, Old Town Infant School and Nursery, Canford Heath Junior School, Heathlands School.
  • Head Teachers across the BCP Council area including those of Independent and Non-Maintained Special Schools.
  • Head Teachers of Schools outside of the BCP council area at which the LA places children in neighbouring authorities.
  • Local Members of Parliament
  • Trade Union representatives of staff who work at the schools subject to change proposals
  • Local Children’s Centres

The deadline for responding to the consultation is 11 June 2010 at 23.59pm for Linwood and Winchelsea school proposals. The deadline is 25 June 2020 at 23.59 for the Somerford Primary School proposal.
