Edward Worlledge Ormiston Academy Autism Base

Closed 24 Nov 2023

Opened 30 Oct 2023



Ormiston Academies Trust would like to hear your views on our proposal to add 6 places to our existing Autism base, creating a 16 place provision from 1 April 2024, at Edward Worlledge Ormiston Academy, Suffolk Road, Great Yarmouth NR31 0ER.

We are very keen to provide this support in our schools and are looking to expand our offer to enable earlier support to be made available and more families to benefit.  By accessing the Autism Base and its support, it will allow those children with autism and other associated needs to be effectively supported in a mainstream setting with access to our curriculum, enrichment and other opportunities.

This has been identified in Norfolk’s Local First Inclusion Programme as a priority for development. The additional places will be allocated through Norfolk County Admissions processes will grow up to full capacity through this admissions process. 

What happens next

Ormiston Academies Trust will consider all the responses received during this consultation and decide whether to complete a business case and send it to the Regional Director, for a decision.
