Residential Closure at Pencalenick; Consultation

Consultation on Cornwall Council’s proposal to re-purpose funding from SEND residential to fund more SEND education day places.

The Council has recently announced a proposal to withdraw funding for overnight boarding facilities at Pencalenick School. There is currently a consultation in place to consult with the school community about this change in the offer.

Special Partnership Trust continue to provide a high quality full residential service to the pupils currently attending and are working closely with the council throughout the consultation period.
