Capital Funding Boost for SEND Support

The Council has earmarked a total of £360,000 [$442K] for the project, with £302,818.36 coming from Education S106 funding and an additional £57,182 [$70K] from High Needs Capital Funding.

This investment is aimed at developing and improving the SEND facilities at the school, particularly the Foundation Unit, which is currently under significant pressure due to the rise in pupils requiring specialised support.

The funding includes contributions linked to two separate developments. The first is from the Trent Bridge Quays Phase I (formerly Banton House) Meadow Lane S106 agreement, which provided a single sum of £115,912.70, of which £112,435.32 remains after administrative deductions. The second contribution comes from the Queens Road, Nottingham Railway Carpark S106 agreement, amounting to £191,455.99, with £190,383.04 available after similar deductions.

These funds are designated for the provision of primary school places and enhanced education facilities to accommodate pupils from the respective developments. Greenfields Community Primary School, being full and oversubscribed, is the beneficiary of this funding, which will be used to create additional space and facilities within the Foundation Unit. …
