SE England
New facilities could be built at Felpham Community College to broaden its provision for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

An application has been submitted to West Sussex County Council for a single-storey standalone building which would house a Specialist Support Centre (SSC) accommodating 12 pupils, specifically catering for those with communication and interaction needs….

The building, towards the south-east corner of the school site near the homes in Drygrounds Lane, would include a main classroom, toilets, offices, calming room, therapy room, sensory room and group space….

According to the application, West Sussex County Council currently places a high number of pupils with social communication difficulties in independent and non-maintained educational provision.

This is not only costs more money than local maintained options, but is also further away from pupils’ homes….
