Plans to transform the provision of special education across Wiltshire

June 5, 2020 9:17 AM

Plans to transform the provision of special education across Wiltshire have taken a big step forward.

The Office for the School Adjudicator examined the proposals to merge St Nicholas in Chippenham, Larkrise in Trowbridge and Rowdeford in Devizes and establish the new, maintained special school with a single leadership team to work across the schools.

The move will see more places created across north Wiltshire.

In a letter to parents, Larkrise headteacher Phil Cook said: "This means that on August 31, Larkrise, Rowdeford and St Nicholas will technically close as three separate schools, and on September 1, 2020 a new single school will be created on the three existing sites.

Lib Dem Spokesperson for South West Wiltshire, Ellen Nicholson said An enormous amount of time and work has gone into the schools merger, looking for the best solution for Wiltshire children, we're hoping this will be a successful way forwards drawing on the strengths and skills in all three schools.
