Children in Pinner with special needs could be set to benefit from a new school as Harrow Council look to increase the number of schools available in the area.
Harrow Council recently hosted a consultation until 8 October seeking views on a proposal to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the Department for Education (DfE) for a special free school in Harrow.
The site for the school is yet to be determined but it would supplement the places available at the four special schools in the area.
Pinner and the Harrow area has experienced a 30 per cent increase in the number of pupils requiring a special educational need since 2012.
If the new school gets the go ahead it will offer 120 places for pupils between the ages of three and 19 years old and will meet the needs of pupils with severe and complex needs.
In the proposal Harrow Council say: “We and our partners are ambitious for children, young people and adults with special educational needs and learning disabilities.
“Our vision is for all children and young people to achieve the best possible outcomes, enabling them to become successful adults.”
