WILDGROUND JUNIOR SCHOOL, DIBDEN PURLIEU – EXPANSION OF RESOURCED PROVISION

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 WILDGROUND INFANT and JUNIOR SCHOOLS, Crete Road, Dibden Purlieu, Southampton, SO45 4LG (category of school – Community) by increasing the capacity of the resourced provision of the school, with effect from 1 September 2021.

2. The current capacity of Wildground Infant School is 210 and the Junior School is 240. The resourced provision currently has capacity for 8 pupils, ages between 5 and 11 years and caters for pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs. It is proposed to increase the capacity at the resourced provision by offering 8 new places, for pupils with ASD bringing the final capacity of the resourced provision to 16. This will not affect the overall capacity of mainstream places at Wildground Junior School.

3. The capital cost of this project, £12,000, will be included in the Children's Services Capital Programme report to the Executive Lead Member for Children's Services in July 2021. This funding provides for the development of spaces, furniture and equipment.

Copies of the complete proposal may be obtained from Bernadette Dawes, Inclusion Commissioning Manager, Children's Services Department, EII Court North, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 8UG; e-mail: strategicplanningunit@hants.gov.uk or by phone on: 07523 937841.
