Views are being sought on plans to increase the space for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) at Manor Green Primary School.
The Community Special School is located in Ifield, Crawley, and offers education from ages 2 - 11.
The school caters for children with a wide range of needs, particularly those with moderate and severe learning difficulties, including social and communication difficulties and autism. The school opened in 2004 and is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
School admissions across West Sussex have been increasing over the last five years and that includes the number of children with SEND.
A consultation has now begun on the proposals which include building two new classrooms and more group space. There are no plans to change the education provision.
Richard Burrett, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “I hope people with an interest in education in the Crawley area will engage with this consultation and tell us what they think of the plans.”
The consultation runs until 13 November 2018 and can be found online.
