We want every child in Ealing to have a place at a good school. Ealing experienced a rising pupil population from 2008 and our school expansions programme is continuing to help to meet the additional demand. This has included expanding existing schools, creating new schools and creating more places for pupils with special educational needs.
Expanding existing schools
Since 2008 we have been permanently expanding schools. Visit our past consultations to see which consultations have run in the past.
Creating new schools
Several new schools have been created in the borough and we are working with the Education Skills and Funding Agency to provide further needed free schools in the borough.
Special educational needs (SEN) provision
Ealing is experiencing an increase in the severity and complexity of needs. We have expanded special schools and created additionally resourced provisions (ARPs) across a number of primary and high schools. We predict a further shortfall in SEN provision within the next few years and we are progressing plans to provide further additional places. We are continuing to investigate all available funding opportunities to improve and expand our schools.
