Send Free School

We are delighted the Department for Education announced in March 2019 that Reading was one of 37 towns which would benefit from a new special free school.

The school will offer 150 places for pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) from Reading and Wokingham boroughs and aims to be open by 2022.

Brighter Futures for Children delivers SEND services on behalf of Reading Borough Council.

Trusts which would like to establish the new school were invited to submit their bids to the DfE and the successful provider will be announced in due course.
