Government funding for a new free special education needs and disabilities (SEND) school has been obtained by a council.
It is anticipated that the Bournemouth facility will be constructed in the next two years, serving about 180 students with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) who are between the ages of three and nineteen.
As a result of the growing need for support for children and young people with SEND, Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole Council (BCP) announced that it was “just one part of a programme of improvement initiatives” that it was putting together.

Cathi Hadley, BCP director of children’s services said the investment would help more children “receive a world-class education”.

She said: “Confirmation that a new school will be built in our area means we are providing vital specialist spaces for those pupils whose needs cannot be met in mainstream education.”

Ms Hadley said the council knew “it has been difficult for families to navigate the SEND system”, adding that it was “committed to achieving the best for all the children and young people in BCP who need extra support to fulfil their full potential”.

“This investment will help more children with special educational needs and disabilities receive a world-class education,” she said.

To serve children under five with SEND, the council announced in April the opening of a new nursery assessment center in Bournemouth.
BCP said Dingley’s Promise “aims to give children the best possible start in life by providing specialist support tailored to each child to help with their onward journey”.
