Sprowston Infant School

Closed 18 Oct 2019

Opened 9 Sep 2019



On 12 December 2019, in her role as Decision Maker, Sara Tough, the Executive Director of Children's Services agreed that the following proposal should be implemented:

to increase the number of Specialist Resource Base places at Sprowston Infant School from 10 to 18, from 1 February 2020.


Norfolk County Council are consulting on a proposal to increase the number of places from 10 places up to 18 places, at the complex needs Specialist Resource Base (SRB) at Sprowston Infant School, Norwich from 1st February 2020.

To meet the demand for primary specialist resource base places we are proposing to;

  • Increase the capacity of the complex needs Specialist Resource Base from 10 places up to 18 places, at Sprowston Infant School, from 1 February 2020. 

Sprowston Infant School already operates a complex needs SRB and is unique in that it caters for children who meet the profile for a placement in a Complex Needs School.  It operates at 100% occupancy throughout the academic year and has done so during the past 5 years.  For the 2019 September Admissions round, 20 applications were made; 9 places have been offered.

  •  It is proposed to use the Children Centre teaching space, based at the school, which is next to the current SRB.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like to hear your views on our proposal.
