This consultation is now closed.

The County Council is the strategic commissioner of education provision in Kent and has a duty to ensure that sufficient school places are available to meet demand. The Commissioning Plan for Education Provision in Kent 2020-23 sets out our commissioning intentions and is revised annually.

Canterbury Academy Trust in collaboration with the National Autistic Society (NAS), Cullum Family Trust and Kent County Council (KCC) would like to carry out a consultation on the proposal to establish a Cullum Centre Specialist Resourced Provisions (SRP) at The Canterbury Academy Trust Campus. It is proposed to be for 24 students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Have your say
