Churchward School Consultation Document

We’ve been approved Following a successful proposal from the Brunel Special Educational Needs Multi-Academy Trust (Brunel SEN MAT), sponsored by Uplands School, the Secretary of state for education has approved a proposal to establish a Free School. Churchward School will be an outstanding special Free School for students aged 11-19 years with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and/or Social Communication Interaction Difficulties (SCID) as their primary need, who live in Swindon and its surrounding areas. Location Churchward School is scheduled to open in September 2018 in a specialist centre with the intent of moving to the permanent site in North Swindon the following year. The specialist centre will then become a work related learning venue for the Uplands Educational Trust with its primary purpose to provide work skills opportunities for the students of Churchward School. This document invites your views as to how this proposal should be taken forward.
