BEDENHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL, GOSPORT – ENLARGEMENT 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 proposes to modify a previous decision to enlarge the resourced provision at BEDENHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL, Bridgemary Avenue, Gosport, Hampshire PO13 0XT (category of school – Community) with effect from 1 September 2021.

2. The enlargement of the resourced provision to support pupils with SEMH needs at Bedenham Primary School will allow the capacity to be increased by 4 additional places. The County Council is proposing to refurbish an area of the school and outdoor space to create a new area in the school for the resourced provision. The school is successfully meeting the needs of children with a range of difficulties in a safe and secure environment. The proposal is to enlarge the resourced provision with effect from 1 September 2021.

3. The current capacity of the resourced provision at Bedenham Primary School is for 8 places. The enlargement of accommodation will be provided with effect from 1 September 2021. From that date the resourced provision will have a total capacity for 12 pupils.

4. The capital cost of this project, £100,000, was included in the Children's Services Capital Programme report approved by Executive Lead Member for Children's Services on 15 March 2021. This funding covers both internal alterations to create larger SEMH resourced provision and an enclosed external play area.
