SERCO want to close Abbey Hill and the 4 other special schools in Stoke on Trent. The proposals state that 3 new units will open and be co-located on main stream High School grounds. The school that has been suggested for Abbey Hill is Birches Head High. Do we want this as parents, staff and governers. There is no mention of any provision for our autistic children. The units will be 'generic' with only 120 places in each. Abbey Hill alone has 211 young people/children. The places will be reduced from 550 to 360. We have are a beacon school with an 'Outstanding' Ofsted Report at Abbey Hill with Performing Arts Status to be proud of.We have dedicated and special staff and special children. WE DO NOT WANT TO LOSE THIS!
