Consultation on the development of SEN Provision in Rugby

Too many learners with the most severe and complex needs have in the past been unable to access local education provision. There are identified gaps in Warwickshire’s provision for Special Education Needs & Disabilities (SEND) and many of the families affected describe their experience of the local education system as non-inclusive. In order to improve the situation the Council, alongside a wide range of partners, has developed. Warwickshire’s Vulnerable Learners Strategy 2015-18.

The Strategy is focused on championing better life chances for Warwickshire’s most vulnerable children and young people to ensure that they, in keeping with every child and young person in Warwickshire, will:

  • Attend a good or outstanding school or setting;
  • Achieve well whatever their starting point or circumstances; and
  • Go on to a positive destination

The Strategy set a number of priorities for action including the development of new SEND Provision. The implementation of this is now under way and the Council will be launching a number of different public consultations in the coming months setting out each of these proposals, all of which will be published here on this web-page.

Current Proposal for Consultation – Brooke School Partnership 

Warwickshire County Council is proposing the development of two new Special Educational Needs provisions in the Rugby area;

  • One for up to 7 primary-aged pupils embedded within Rokeby Primary School
  • Another for up to 14 secondary-aged pupils embedded within Harris Church of England Academy 

Both settings will be managed and staffed by Brooke Special School and will have their own separate admissions criteria and process.
