Expanding Mainstream and SEND Capacity at Tithe Barn Primary School

Closes 18 Jun 2023

Opened 4 May 2023


Stockport is proud of the quality of education provided by its diverse and high-performing system of schools, colleges, and early years’ settings. Stockport is committed to ensuring its residents have access to good local schools which offer a rich and varied learning experience.

The Council has an enduring statutory responsibility to commission sufficient high quality school places. This means having the right number and type of school places, in the right place, at the right time to meet demand.

Stockport Council wants to know your views on a proposal to increase the published admission number and establish a specialist resource provision (SRP) at Tithe Barn Primary School. Stockport Council is comitted to improving the SEND offer and ensuring families have the option to allow their child's needs to be met locally. 

Currently, children requiring specialist provision are having to travel a significant distance across the borough to have their needs met in a specialist setting. Projections indicate that the number of children requiring specialist provision will increase at a level of 2.85% each year until 2027. 

If agreed, this proposal will expand Stockport's current SEND provision; ensuring that suitable, high quality, local provision is available for all pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. 

Why your views matter

Responses to this consultation will be used to inform a final decision by the Council's Place Planning Board about whether or not to publish a statutory proposal to increase the PAN and create new SEND provision at Tithe Barn Primary School.
