Proposal to create SEND resource provision at Lacon Childe School

The report will include a summary of comments received from individuals and photocopies of the responses from recognised organisations. The report will be a public document, so will be available to the media and on the school and council websites.

Shropshire Council will consider the response to the consultation and form a view about what they believe to be the appropriate provision for the future. This will happen as soon as possible after the end of the consultation period.
