July 7, 2020, Preston Hub: Parents Asked To Give Feedback On Special Education Strategy
(Northern England) Parents and children are being asked for their feedback on a new strategy to improve services for special education. The County Council wants feedback on school provision for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The SEND consultation, which launches today (Monday 6 July), is a chance for people to share their views about support provided in both mainstream and special schools. Proposals for specialised services outside mainstream school provision include: • Providing 100 new places for children with SEND at Sir Tom Finney Community High School, Preston on the top floor. • Opening the Haven site in Thornton Cleveleys, as a new facility offering more places for children who need social, emotional or mental health support. • Moving Broadfield Specialist School in Oswaldtwistle to the former Hameldon Community College site in Burnley to provide better specialist teaching spaces and 60 new secondary places for children with a wide range of SEND needs…..
