Within Wirral Council a need was identified for specialist provision for young people with Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH) needs or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or both and a resource base provision has been developed at Egremont Primary school in response to this need. In consultation with the Department of Education (DfE), it is now proposed to expand the base to provide high quality support to more young people through inclusive environments and activity, catering for the needs of pupils with SEMH needs or ASD, or both. It is proposed the base will offer 24 places that would be flexibly available for key stage 2 children with 2 separate spacious rooms with up to 12 children in each. This would potentially be a year 3/4 hub and a year 5/6 hub. Whilst an inclusive approach is essential, the transition into these classes may be alongside other children where an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP)/identified need for such provision has been identified.
We are now consulting on this - please follow the link to share you views:
