ASHLEY INFANT SCHOOL, NEW MILTON – 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 ASHLEY INFANT SCHOOL, Lower Ashley Road, Ashley, New Milton, BH25 5AA (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 Ashley Infant School is 180. The resourced provision currently has capacity for 16 pupils with severe learning difficulties (SLD). It is proposed to create capacity at the resourced provision by offering 8 new places, bringing the capacity of the resourced provision to 24. This will not affect the overall capacity of mainstream places at Ashley Infant School.

3. The capital cost of this project, £25,000, 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 interior spaces and associated furniture and equipment.

4. This Notice is an extract from the complete proposal. 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.
