(UK) Portsmouth: PreK school for special needs children opens; SPED funds increase

Oct 8, 2021, Portsmouth City Council: New era begins at Mayfield School https://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/2021/10/08/new-era-begins-at-mayfield-school/

South central England Mayfield School in Portsmouth held an official ceremony yesterday to celebrate the opening of their brand new school building, which includes a dedicated Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) centre. As the only local authority ‘all-through’ school in the city, it is set to provide a high-quality education environment for around 1,400 pupils from infants through to secondary school…. The opening of the new building at Mayfield School comes shortly after the completion of a new inclusion centre at Penhale Infants School for children who need additional support with their learning, and after other specialist school places were created for children with more complex needs at Mary Rose, Cliffdale Primary and Redwood Park academies. It follows Portsmouth City Council making funds available to help 21 mainstream schools in the city to become even more inclusive for children with special needs.
