Watton Westfield Infant & Nursery and Junior Schools - addition of 16 place SRB

Closes 10 Oct 2022

Opened 12 Sep 2022


Corvus Education Trust would like to hear your views on our proposal for Watton Westfield Infant and Nursery School, West Road, Watton, Norfolk IP25 6AU and Watton Junior School, Brandon Road, Watton, Norfolk IP25 6AL to add a 16 place Social, Emotional and Mental Health Specialist Resource Base (SEMH SRB) from 1 April 2024, based at the Watton Junior School site

They are very keen to provide this support at our schools.  The Specialist Resource Base will be located behind Watton Junior School, still within the school grounds. It will be a new building, creating an enabling environment for SRB learners in a bespoke accommodation base.  The Base will be managed by the Headteacher and governing body at Watton Westfield Infant & Nursery School and Watton Junior School.

Our proposal will have a recurrent funding agreement to support an agreed staffing structure for the Specialist Resource Base, including resources, equipment and running costs associated with the Base.

The local authority, Norfolk County Council is responsible for all admissions to Specialist Resource Bases. Referrals are considered by a County panel, and placements of pupils with or without an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are made using eligibility criteria for pupils with an SEMH profile and assessing these against needs and appropriateness of referral. 

The specialist resource base located at Watton Junior School, Brandon Road, Watton Norfolk IP25 6AL, will grow to full capacity through this admissions process and may therefore not be full on the 1 April 2024. 

We are running a consultation on the proposals from Monday 12th September to Monday 10th October 2022 inclusive
