EADT – Education centres for Suffolk children with additional needs saved after closure threat

Eight education centres for children with additional needs in Suffolk threatened with closure have been saved following 15 months of uncertainty over their future.

Suffolk County Council (SCC) launched in January last year proposals to close the specialist support centres, which are based at mainstream schools and support around 100 children living with complex and moderate learning difficulties.

The council argued they were under-used and said the move would save £250,000 a year from the overall £1.4million centres’ budget
