(UK) Hailsham: New facility for autistic students in the planning stage

Mar 20, 2019, Sussex Express: New facilities at Hailsham school for children with special educational needs A new facility for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) could be set to open at a Hailsham primary school later this year. Proposals for a SEN facility at Grovelands Community Primary School are due to be considered by East Sussex County Council’s lead member for education Bob Standley next Monday (March 25). If approved, the facility would open in April and provide in-school support for eight pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) between the ages of seven and 11. … Proposals for a similar facility at Peacehaven Heights Primary School were approved in December last year. The council is expected to look at bringing forward proposals for similar facilities at other schools – most likely in Battle – in the near future.
