Consultation in to new SEND provision at Newall Green Primary


Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to inform you of the proposed changes to the Special Educational Needs provision that we provide at Newall Green Primary School.

We are proposing to open a Resourced Provision that would accommodate 14 pupils with Special Educational Needs.

The pupils who are eligible for the provision would be assigned by the admissions team at Manchester City Council and the child would have an Education Health and Care Plan.

Should the changes be approved, they will come into force from September 2022.

Manchester City Council have a high demand for pupil places within smaller educational provisions.  The January 2021 school census showed that 17.6% of Manchester pupils have SEND (15,827 pupils). This was made up of 13.4% (11,987 pupils) who have their needs met at SEN Support level in a mainstream school and 4.3% of the school population who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan (3840 pupils). Of the 3840 pupils with an EHC, 52.7% attend a mainstream setting and 47.3% attend a special school. There has been significant growth in the number of children with an EHCP, increasing from 1912 in 2010, to 3840 in 2021. This growth has resulted in increased demand for places in a specialist setting in Manchester and can be expected to continue given the established data trends.

Due to the increased demand for the type of specialist support Newall Green Primary School can provide, it has been necessary for the Local Authority to create additional capacity. Dedicated accommodation has been established for when children require time outside regular classes within the Resourced Provision.

The information in this letter has also been sent to the local primary schools within the area, parents and carers of children educated at Newall Green Primary School and to the Nursery settings that feed into Newall Green Primary School.  

There is no planned change or disruption for the pupils of children within the main stream classes at Newall Green Primary School. However I would like to invite you to give your feedback by sending your responses to or by completing the consultation that has been sent out via the School Spider app.

We will release the results of the consultation by December 2021 and we will communicate the outcome via our website.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Rudd
