Consultation on new provision for children with special educational needs

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is proposing to open new facilities for children with special educational needs.  The funding for these new facilities will come from a government grant called the High Needs Provision Capital Allocation.

What are we proposing?

  • an Early Years School Readiness Hub at The Lawns Nursery School, Windsor. 
  • up to four new Resource Bases, attached to schools in Maidenhead and in Windsor, for children with special educational needs.

The proposed Resource Bases are at:

You can find out more in our online consultation, or by downloading the pdf consultation document at the bottom of this page.

What you say matters

Parents, staff, governors, residents and community organisations are all being consulted.  Your views are vital, so please take time to be part of this consultation.  You can tell us what you think by:

What happens next?

The schools involved in this consultation and the Royal Borough will consider the responses received. Each school will decide whether it wants to proceed, and the Royal Borough’s Cabinet will then consider the proposals on Thursday 30 March 2023.

If a decision is taken to go ahead with one or more of the proposals, then we hope to open the Early Years School Readiness Hub in September 2023.  The Wave 2 Resource Bases will start to open from September 2024 onwards.

These proposals are likely to be subject to getting planning permission for any new buildings.  In the case of the academies (Cox Green, Desborough and Trevelyan) the Department for Education will also need to approve the proposals.
