EXPRESSION OF INTEREST- SPECIAL FACILITY DEVELOPMENT / DEVELOPMENT TO BUILD CAPACITY FOR INCLUSION

We would like to hear from any school that has interest in potential future development of a Special Facility in Mainstream or would like to make an expression of interest for resource to support the development of inclusion in their school or group of schools.

The High Needs Block Review identified the need for further Special Facility in mainstream provision in East Sussex. Detail of the findings for this area can be found in the reports on the High Needs page within CZone.

We would now like to hear from any school that has interest in potential future development of a Special Facility in Mainstream or would like to make an expression of interest for resource to support the development of inclusion in their school or group of schools.

An expression of interest form and the relevant High Needs Review Findings papers are available via the below link to Czone.

Expressions of Interest Form and papers

Expressions of interest should be received by 5pm 18th May 2018. The criteria for selection can be found in the EOI. There is no ready capital funding available for this work, and any resource will be the result of a successful invest to save business case based on the strength of submissions.  Commitment to the inclusion agenda and strong partnership work with the LA will be a key factor.

If you would like an informal conversation to clarify this please email: HighNeedsBlock@eastsussex.gov.uk leaving an email address and telephone number and we will contact you to coordinate a discussion.

We look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in submitting a proposal.
