Brimble Hill admission number increase

In light of significant pressure across the borough to provide additional Special Educational Needs Primary Places due to the increased number of statements, and the borough expanding as a whole, a proposal to increase the admission number at Brimble Hill Special School to provide an additional eight primary aged places has been developed. Brimble Hill Primary Special School has an excellent reputation in the local community. There is still demand for this high level of specialist provision in Swindon and the school has a waiting list. In recent months the school has been able to flex the intake to accommodate 85 pupils as an increase is permitted within a 10% limit. This proposal will form a key part of the long term Special Educational Need provision development strategy.

The initial proposal would seek to increase the admission number from the current 77 status by an additional 8, to 85 in total. We expect these additional places to be filled on the initial intake in September 2018.

Swindon Borough Council is inviting representations on the expansion during the statutory consultation period which will run for eight weeks from Friday 24 November to Friday 19 January 2018.
