THE COPPICE SPRING ACADEMY – INCREASE OF AGREED PUPIL NUMBER AND CHANGE OF AGE RANGE

1. Notice is hereby given, in accordance with Section 19(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006, that Hampshire County Council intends to make a prescribed alteration to THE COPPICE SPRING ACADEMY, BASINGSTOKE, Pack Lane, Basingstoke, RG22 5TH (category of school – special) by increasing the capacity of the school and changing the age range with effect from 01 February 2021.

The current agreed pupil number (APN) for The Coppice Spring Academy is 70 pupils aged 11-16 year olds with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH). It is proposed to increase the APN of the school by adding 10 places. This will give an updated APN for the school of 80 pupils from 01 February 2021. In addition, it is proposed that the age range for the school is lowered to enable children aged 10 years old to attend. This change brings the age range to 10-16 years old.

The capital cost of this project, £214,000, was included in the Children's Services Capital Programme report approved by Executive Lead Member for Children's Services on 16th September 2020.
