Statutory notice for the proposal to change the age range and increase pupil numbers at the specialist centre at The Hythe Primary School

Closed 3 Jul 2018

Opened 4 Jun 2018


Surrey County Council, in liaison with The Hythe Primary School, is proposing to extend the age range of the specialist centre for pupils with Learning and Additional Needs (LAN) in order to align the SEND offer with the school age range. The Harbour Centre will become a ‘Specialist Centre’ for both LAN and high COIN children across the primary age range. This means that the school would be able to accommodate pupils from Reception year who could then stay at the school until the end of year 6, if their needs are still able to be met by the school.

It is proposed that the number of places changes from the current total of 12 planned places (notionally 3 per year group in key stage 2 only) to 25 (notionally 3 per year group for key stage 1 and 4 per year group at key stage 2). This will enable the provision to remain sustainable, to meet local demand and for it to match the age range of the rest of the school. These changes would come into effect from 1st September 2018.

Surrey County Council and the specialist centre at The Hythe Primary School would like to seek your views on this proposal.  The statutory consultation will be published 4th June 2018.
