Shavington Primary - 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 Crewe, Nantwich and Shavington area to provide at least 21 places in specialist resource provision for children with a primary need of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).

In June 2017 Cheshire East asked schools in the Crewe, Nantwich and Shavington areas if they were interested in creating a funded resource provision in their schools and Shavington Primary School expressed an interest.

Further information on the need and rational for additional places can be found in the consultation document.
