Kent County Council (KCC), Foreland Fields Special School and EKC Group are proposing to create a satellite of Foreland Fields School at EKC Group, Broadstairs College to provide up to 24 places for Key stage 4 and Post-16 aged students. This will be through opening a 12 place Key Stage 4 and a 12 place Post 16 class.
KCC does not have sufficient local specialist provision in schools and colleges in Kent. We are asking EKC Group, to host a specialist provision for up to 24 Key stage 4 and post-16 aged pupils, this is because we recognise the skills and expertise which the College already has and their interest in developing closer working links between the College and Foreland Fields school in order to better support young people with SEND into adulthood.
This new specialist provision in EKC Group, Broadstairs College will be a satellite of Foreland Fields in Ramsgate and it is anticipated that the satellite will support pupils with Complex Needs and ASD, rather than the full range of Profound Severe and Complex Needs (PSCN) that Foreland Fields School provides for.
