Families Overwhelmingly in Favour of Expansion

Responses to the public consultation to the proposal to expand the provision at Brantridge School have been overwhelmingly positive.

98% of all respondents agreed with the statement:

I am in agreement with the proposal to expand the school to accommodate a co-ed secondary provision.

Here are some of the positive comments received from existing parents:

“My son would be over the moon to stay on for secondary education at Brantridge. I couldn’t agree more to the proposal.”

“The proposed school expansion will allow for much needed local secondary SEN school places. My son is settled and thriving at Brantridge so for him to move onto secondary next year would be the best option for him. Finding another school that can meet his needs is going to be difficult.”

“My son currently attends Brantridge School and is in your Year 5. He has progressed massively since starting here 2 1/2 years ago. He is very happy at school and the prospect of him being able to stay at Brantridge for his secondary education is something we would be very happy about.”

“This school is amazing, and I cannot tell you how much of a difference this will make to our son’s future if he is able to stay on at Brantridge School for his final school years.”

“Special needs schools are desperately needed in West Sussex. It took us two years to find a SEN school for our son. After lots of failings of other schools our son has been going to Brantridge school since February and he has come on leaps and bounds. He is due to leave in September and we are sick with worry over having to find another school. We desperately want him to stay at Brantridge where he is safe and happy. For this proposal not to go ahead would be a catastrophe for children with SEN. Our children deserve this.”

Thank you to everyone who responded to the consultation and for all the positive comments about Brantridge School.
