The Reasons are: The expansion of Chatsworth High will create much needed additional places to support the Local Authority’s SEND pupil place need. Allowing young people to access local provision.
Options considered and rejected were: None
Assessment of Risk: If the city council does not increase its SEND school provision to meet the projected demand, then the city council would not be fulfilling its statutory duty in relation to the provision of sufficient school places.
The source of funding is: The capital cost will be met from within the city council’s SEND funding.
