Original consultation details
Our strategic plan for special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) education provision 2018 to 2023 includes proposals to create new special school provision through working towards the establishment of satellite specialist provision in the Ripon area during 2018-19. The initial proposal is to establish up to 30 places in 2019-20. This will then rise to up to 60 places by 2021-22.
Mowbray is a special school at Bedale, making provision for a wide range of complex special educational needs or disabilities. Mapping of the current cohort of children and young people attending Mowbray School shows a number live in the Ripon area and potentially could benefit from this provision in addition to those requiring this type of provision into the future.
This proposal is linked to proposals set out in another consultation to amalgamate Moorside Infant School and Moorside Junior School to create a single three to 11 primary school on the junior school site.
