Belmont School consultation

Consultation Homepage

The Council is proposing to create additional provision and create choice for parents of pupils with severe and complex needs with autism by establishing an additionally resourced provision at Belmont School. The proposals can be viewed in full on the council's website.

The aim of the provision will be to develop a clear ethos throughout the whole school that promotes inclusion, high expectations and a commitment to improve outcomes for pupils with severe learning difficulties and/or autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).

The provision will offer inclusive education and social opportunities, alongside access to specialist intervention from teaching staff and in class support. There will be between 10 to 12 places at the provision and 4 to 6 members of staff.

The provision will require additional and suitable accommodation to create an appropriate teaching and learning environment. An area within the school has been identified and a scope of works outlined. These include refurbishment works to an existing school wing to accommodate specialist spaces including a Resource Base, Soft Play and Sensory Room accessed from a dedicated secure corridor. 

Belmont School will receive additional funding for this proposed Additionally Resourced Mainstream School (ARMS) unit.
