Save Suffolk Specialist Support Centres (SSC)

We won! - 27/03/15

This news was confirmed by Paul Senior, the Consultant who is heading the SEN changes together with Adrian Orr (Interim Director, Education and Learning). The notification says:

"Dear Parent/Carer

Following consultation relating to the future of SSCs being halted, I am now able to confirm that there will not be any changes to current provision before the end of the 2015/16 school year.'

Save Suffolk Specialist Support Centres (SSC)

Please stop the closure of all 7 Special Support Centres in Suffolk.

Why is this important?

Special Support Centres (SSCs) provide a unique and dedicated educational environment for children with moderate to complex learning difficulties who are deemed unsuitable for mainstream education.

Reasons for signing

  • I signed this because I feel deeply shocked. Won't this set provision back to levels of the 50's?
  • I feel it is a great injustice to the children that rely upon these classes and without the help I received when I was in primary school I don't believe I would be where I am now.
  • I feel that this is essential for these children to help them get the most out of education
