Phase 2 Special Support Centre Programme - West Park Primary School, Worthing - Allocation of Funding

There is a need to increase provision for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) through the creation of additional places in Specialist Support Centres that are attached to mainstream schools and academies. This will assist with the aim of enabling children to attend school locally.


In December 2019 Cabinet approved the proposal to develop Phase two of the project for opening additional Special Support Centres in accordance with capital governance processes (decision reference CAB03(19/20)). In October 2020 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills approved the allocation of design fees to progress 6 of the Special Support Centres including West Park Primary School (Decision reference ES09 (20/21))


Since that approval further design work has been undertaken and costed in relation to the Special Support Centre at West Park Primary School in Worthing.


The Cabinet Member for Learning and Skills will be asked to approve the allocation of capital funding from the Capital Programme to enable the project to create a Special Support Centre at West Park Primary School proceed.
