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 Felpham Community College (Decision reference ES09 (20/21))
Since that approval further design work has been undertaken and costed in relation to the Special Support Centre at Felpham Community College in Bognor Regis.
The Cabinet Member for Education 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 Felpham Community College to proceed.
