Local Consultation - additionally resourced provision at Benfield School

 Consultation on increasing the number of places in the Communication and Interaction Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) at Benfield School from 15 to 25 from September 2021 closed on 30 June 2021.
Three responses to the consultation were received, all of which were in favour of the proposal. A formal letter of support was also received from Newcastle City Council.
Having taken this into account, the NEAT Academy Trust Board of Directors has agreed to proceed to the next stage of the process, which is to submit a full business case to the Department for Education for approval. 
We thank everyone who contributed to this consultation exercise.
We encourage you to respond to the consultation so the Board can take views into account before making a decision about whether to apply to the Regional Schools Commissioner to increase the number of places.
