Bowden House School Statutory Notice

Statutory Notice: Publication date 11th January 2021

Proposal for a prescribed alteration to Bowden House School
to establish a 12 place Special Educational Needs provision from September 2021

Notice is
given in accordance with Section 15 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 (as
amended by the Education Act 2011) and the School Organisation (Establishment
and Discontinuance of Schools) Regulations 2013 that Tower Hamlets local
authority will decide whether to establish a 12 place co-educational SEMH
provision, for 5-11 year old children, as part of an integrated Primary SEMH
provision at the Ben Jonson School site.

This will
be established following the implementation of the Tower Hamlets SEND Strategy
and Tower Hamlets Primary SEMH Implementation Plan.

proposal requires a “prescribed alteration” for Bowden House School to extend
its age range to 5-19 and to increase its capacity by 12 pupils at the Ben
Jonson site. (Change in number of pupils in a Special School of more than 10%
and Change of Age Range)

addition, “prescribed alterations” are being considered to allow:

provision at the Ben Jonson School site to be day provision, not residential.
The secondary provision will remain predominantly residential;

and only the
primary provision will be co-educational. The secondary provision will remain
boys only.

can be viewed
