(UK) Cheshire, England: New school needed for disabled students

Aug 10, 2017, Cheshire, England, Wilmslow: 21% of children with special needs didn't have secondary school place by deadline http://www.wilmslow.co.uk/news/article/16161/21-of-children-with-special-needs-didnt-have-secondary-school-place-by-deadline One in five primary school children in Cheshire East with special needs did not have a secondary school place by the February deadline. Cheshire East Council failed to provide a place for twenty-three children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) by the February 15th cut off date, though places have now been allocated for them all. "Aligned to our commitment in this area, the council, working in partnership with the Department for Education, has recently launched a search to find a high quality organisation to run a new special free school in the borough. "The building of this new school, for 40 pupils with complex needs aged between 4 and 16, via this competition is an integral element of our plans for improvement."
