Borough School Placement & Sufficiency Strategy for Children & Young People with Special Educational Needs: Commissioning of Additional Places at Penistone Grammar School

This is a Key Decision report which seeks Cabinet approval for the commissioning of these places at Penistone Grammar School. The proposal supports the objectives of the above Borough Strategy by enhancing parental choice and enabling pupils with SEND to receive their education in a mainstream setting, closer to home and within their own community. This will reduce the need to place such pupils in costlier placements within independent settings outside of the Borough far from their families and communities.
