You, or someone you know may be interested in the information below from the Planning Manager in Children’s Services:

“We wanted to make you aware that consultation is currently taking place on a proposal to create a new generic special free school under a free school presumption process from September 2021, providing approximately 150 places for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) aged 4-16 years.  It is proposed that the special school would be located at Rose Court, Buckingham Road, Headingley, however this is dependent upon Leeds City Council acquiring the Rose Court site from its current owner, the Grammar School at Leeds.

Please click here to access the consultation documents and an on-line survey which you can use to put forward views on the proposal.

Two community drop-in events (details below) will take place during the consultation period which runs until 16 December 2019.  These events will be attended by council officers from the school place planning and highways teams and will be open to anyone with an interest in the proposal, offering an opportunity to ask questions and share views.

Drop-in events:

11 December 2019 3:00pm – 5:00pm Leeds City Centre Hub, Merrion House, Merrion Way, Leeds LS2 8PD
