Puss Bank School and Nursery - resource provision

There is a growing need across Cheshire East for more specialist resource provision places and currently due to the lack of places some children are being educated in schools outside of Cheshire East. This lack of provision means that children are spending time travelling to and from school at a significant cost to the local authority.

The council have completed a sufficiency review of its special educational needs provision across the local authority. It has identified that there is a need within the Macclesfield area to provide at least a further 23 places in specialist resource provision for children with a primary need of ASC .

The academy trust for Puss Bank School and Nursery are seeking to support the Local Authority in meeting its statutory duty to provide these school places by proposing the expansion of their current  ASC provision from 7 to 14 places for implementation January 2020.
