The age-range of Stone Bay (Community Special) School changed from 8-19 years to 5-19 years from September 2019 with the introduction of KS1 classes. The school, together with KCC, now wish to extend the provision to include a reception class (EYPS) to enable the school to take children from aged 4 in order to meet local need for reception specialist places.
The Cabinet Member for Education & Skills is asked to:
(i) Issue a public notice to permanently change the age range of the school and increase the designated number of the school and subject to no objections being received to the public notice; and
(ii) Change the age range from 5-19 years to 4-19 years in order to provide reception places and to increase the designated number from 80 to 90 to respond to the demand for specialist places.
