Developing new special school provision

December 22, 2016

ESSET is working closely with Essex County Council to develop much needed additional provision for pupils with low incidence, high cost SENd. ESSET members The Seax Trust and Market Field Learning Community have recently attended Free School Interviews with the DFE proposing to establish special free schools for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Conditions from September 2018.  These proposals will create 145 new school places, 20 of which will be on a Monday to Thursday term time boarding basis.  The DfE hopes to decide the outcome of our applications in April 2017.
