Have your say on local schools for Special Needs and Disabilities

Parents from the SEND Families Action Group attended last night’s Full Council meeting to bring to Members attention the proposed closure of local schools Larkrise and St Nicholas for children with Special Needs and Disabilities, in favour of a plan by Wiltshire Council to open a much larger facility further afield.

The Mayor of Bradford on Avon, Cllr Alex Kay said afterwards;

“I understand the concept of a ‘Centre of Excellence’; it works well for factories… but it’s not just processes and facilities that educate children. I think the case for having special needs educational facilities in the hearts of our communities is really strong.”

In response to a legal challenge by the SEND Families Action Group, Wiltshire Council have launched a Consultation in which you can participate HERE
