Public Access services for planning, building control and licensing applications will be unavailable from midday to 4pm on Saturday 9 March. This is due to essential maintenance.

We have the following strategies and policies relating to education, learning and skills.

Commissioning of places

The Commissioning of Places Strategy 2019 to 2023 contains the information required to form a strategic view of the need for school places across South Gloucestershire.

The commissioning process requires the strategic planning of services based on an analysis of need.

The strategy sets out demographic trends such as new major house building, current school and post-16 provision, analysis of pupil projections and analysis of funding.

SEND strategy

The special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) strategy 2018 to 2023 is for children and young people aged 0 to 25 years.

This strategy incorporates collective feedback we received from listening to the views of children, families, schools, settings, colleges and stakeholders through consultation events and surveys.

Small and rural schools

To respond to the specific pressures faced by small and rural schools, the small and rural schools strategy provides a range of creative opportunities for school leaders, governing boards and trusts.
