Kensington and Chelsea Council is putting a planning application in early 2018 to build a new special school and rebuild Barlby Primary School. Plans for these schools were consulted on earlier in the year, with positive feedback from staff, parents and local residents.
If approved the special school will be built on part of the current Barlby site and will provide 80 new places for children aged three to 18 with serve learning difficulties, including autism. The two schools will work closely together will have some shared facilities, including halls and kitchen.
The brand new, high quality Barlby school will also be built on the site, replacing the current outdated building which is badly in need of repair. The children of North Kensington will have first class facilities in a modern, flexible space.
