Mandeville Satellite Proposal
The existing Mandeville building was opened in 2008, subsequent expansions of the nursery block, conversion of classes to respond to the growing number of pupils with profound learning difficulties and provision for 10 classes of pupils with autism and severe learning difficulties has meant that pupil numbers have increased from 86 to 156 over the past 10 years.
The current Mandeville site has reached capacity in terms of places; the proposal for a satellite site at Oldfield offers a different and exciting opportunity to provide an education for some of our Early Years Foundation Stage pupils who have autism and severe learning difficulties. The Oldfield site will allow additional 24 places for pupils who will be educated by Mandeville staff. Once pupils have completed the EYFS they will move to the main Mandeville site and a new intake will start at Oldfield.
