Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


That the approach to consultation and feedback received be noted, and the proposals contained within the report be agreed as the detailed capital programme for 2021/22, specifically -


  1. Agree to the allocation of High Needs Capital Provision to carry out work to improve the facilities and expand provision for pupils with special education needs and disabilities (SEND) detailed in Appendix 1 to the report: Proposed Capital Projects, High Needs (SEND) Capital Provision Programme, Table 1.
  2. Note the completion of previous SEND Capital schemes in Appendix 2 to the report.

Reasons for the decision:

To ensure compliance with the Council’s statutory duties as highlighted in Section 6 of the report - Legal Position; to enhance facilities and expand the local offer of special educational provision in Trafford schools for children and young people with Education, Health and Care Plans; and to support Trafford’s vision of Excellence in Education and ensure that pupils are able to thrive and achieve their educational outcomes through fit for purpose and high quality learning environments.

Alternative options considered:

To progress with another Primary SSC which is not located in the south locality and reduce the funding available for the bidding round. This is not the preferred option as the bidding round schemes will have a further reach to improve facilities for more children and young people with SEND. Or to do nothing.
