Subject to the
outcome of the consultation the Lead Member will be asked to take a
final decision on a proposal to re-designate the SEN facility at
Wallands Community Primary School from 1 September 2022, to also
include pupils with a primary need of Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Wallands Community Primary School has a designated specialist facility for up to 16 pupils aged 4-11 with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). East Sussex County Council is proposing to extend the designation of the facility from 1 September 2022, to include pupils aged 4-11 with a primary need of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The change in designation will enable the council to meet a growing need for places for pupils aged 4-11 with ASD, linked to a reduction in demand for SLCN places.
