Proposed closure of the Ark Speech and Language Disorder Unit at Upton Primary School

It is proposed to close the Ark speech and language disorder unit at Upton Primary School because there have been persistent, long-term difficulties in ensuring sufficient use and uptake of the provision, meaning costly SEN places are frequently and repeatedly being unused. 

This has resulted in the very few children who still use and access the provision not having a peer group available and specialist resources not being used efficiently.
