Proposed Closure of Wigmore Primary School’s Specialist ASD Unit

Closed 28 Jul 2020

Opened 30 Jun 2020


Luton Council and Wigmore Primary School are seeking your views on a proposal to permanently close the School’s specialist Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) unit. Plans are underway to develop a new unit at Downside Primary School.

The new proposed provision at Downside Primary will operate from a different ethos  - the provison has been designed and staffed so that pupils can be educated within the provision in parallel to their mainstream peers, until they are academically. socially and emotionally ready to be included in mainsteam lessons (with each subject being considered separately).Funding will be sufficient to allow this, the change in vision and expectations around the way in which the provision will operate should enable this to be successful.
