Walton Hall Special School visit

Press release  15/06/2011

Following the visit by Bill Cash (MP, Stone) and Jeremy Lefroy (MP, Stafford) to Walton Hall Special School on Friday (10th June), Mr. Cash has written to the Secretary of State and Staffordshire County Council seeking a response over support and assistance and to establish the current position for his constituents – including their families – after they pass the age of 18.
 
MP for Stafford, Jeremy Lefroy, raised the issue today at Prime Ministers Questions, indicating his and Cash’s visit to Walton Hall Special School, and asking for the Prime Minister’s response to parents and teachers anxieties over provision for their children after 19 and what encouragement he could give them. David Cameron responded agreeing that they have “… got to find the best answer for parents…”
 
Today, Cash said:
“There are concerns over what support and resources are available to my constituents and their families when they turn 18 and lose their current support package upon transferring to Adult services.
“The test for many parents is that the current support package will need to be matched in Adult services as in many cases the future needs will be increasing and will not disappear after their 18th birthday.
“More locally, in Staffordshire, when a pupil reaches 19 and can no longer stay, for example, at Walton Hall Special School, parents and teachers have concerns over what provisions there are available to meet specific needs.”
 “I am taking up those important matters with the Secretary of State and Staffordshire County Council.”
