Special School set to expand

PLANS to expand the number of places at a special School for children with autism in Liverpool are set to get the green light. Under the proposal, Bank View High School in Fazakerley - which is rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted; will expand by 28 places to 178, from September 2017. The increase is to help meet demand for Primary School pupils diagnosed with the condition, or who are being assessed. Following a successful pilot project, 16 of the 28 places will be located at Croxteth Primary School in a centre managed by Bank View.

Assistant Mayor of Liverpool and Cabinet Member for Schools and Education Cllr Nick Small said:- "We are hugely proud of the support our special Schools provide to our young people and this expansion of services is good news. This proposal will allow the sharing of good practice and will help prepare children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder for their next stage of learning, having developed social skills, independence and self esteem."

Bank View High School opened in 2015 as part of Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson's ₤169 million School rebuilding programme which has seen 23 Schools, rebuilt or significantly improved. Following approval by Liverpool City Council's Cabinet, in early June 2017, statutory notices are being published and a consultation held, after which a final decision will be made.
