Proposals for changes to how children and young people with additional needs are supported in education

Closed 19 Jul 2019

Opened 23 May 2019

Overview

In England, Resourced Provision (RP) is one way we can meet the needs of children and young people who require additional support in education, but who do not require the full range of support offered by Special Schools. In this consultation we are proposing changes to our approach to Resourced Provision in Cumbria and we would like your views before we make any final decisions.

What Happens Next

Where the county council proposes significant changes to a school there must be a consultation process and publication of those proposals in a statutory notice.


There are five stages to the statutory process that must be followed:

Consultation
The issue of this document marks the start of a period of consultation during which the views of any interested parties are sought. These views will be considered before any further stages in the process are undertaken.
Publication
Following consideration of the results of the consultation, a decision must be made by Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet on whether to publish statutory notices about the proposed change.
Representation
A period of representation following the publication of a statutory notice allows interested parties another opportunity to submit their views before a final decision is made. This period lasts for four weeks.
Decision
Within two months of the end of the representation period Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet must make a decision on the proposal.
Implementation
If the proposal is approved then the changes would come into effect on
in September 2020.
