Future special educational provision in Ealing

The future of special educational provision in Ealing

Ealing is experiencing a rapidly rising pupil population and an increase in the severity and complexity of needs. This will lead to a higher demand for places in specialist provision and special schools.

As a result of the above, Ealing Council has proposed several options for expansion of specialist provision across the borough.

The council wants all children and young people attending its schools to achieve their full potential. This is particularly important for those of our young people with special educational needs.

The council asked to hear your views through a consultation to determine the next steps in ensuring they have sufficient and appropriate special educational provision in the future.

The consultation on future special educational provision in Ealing is now closed. The council would like to thank all who participated and appreciate you taking your time to comment on the proposals. The council will now evaluate the responses and report to Cabinet in July.  This report will be available in mid-July and will be published at the Cabinet meeting section.

Following Cabinet consideration in July, there will be a further statutory consultation process in autumn focussing on specific proposals.
