Consultation: Proposal for a Special Resource Provision (SRP) for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at Marylebone Boys’ School (MBS)
Westminster City Council’s Special Educational Needs Department (SEND) Strategy 2018-2021 notes that there has been an increase of 50% in the number of children with autism in the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea between 2008 and 2012. Feedback from Westminster City Council’s parent/carer forum has indicated a strong preference for mainstream resourced based provision alongside increasing special school places.

Westminster SEND has requested expression of interest from secondary schools in hosting an SRP for children with ASD within a mainstream school.

MBS has a track record of successfully providing for children with ASD and has therefore responded positively with a proposal to set up an SRP for up to 18 children with ASD. This would not increase the overall published admission number at the school but it would provide additional funding for resources and staffing with expertise to better meet the needs of children with ASD, which would mean better outcomes for those children.

MBS is conducting a formal consultation with stakeholders to establish those in favour and those who object to the plan.

The consultation opens at 1.00pm, on Monday 14 November and closes at 8.00am on Monday 12 December.

We would kindly ask all parents/carers to give feedback on the consultation. Feedback can be submitted via the Microsoft Form below.
