Croydon’s respite and short breaks service for adults with a learning disability is currently based at a property known as Heatherway in South Croydon. The service provides overnight stays for adults with learning disabilities on a planned, or when possible, emergency basis.

(b) improve the physical environment of the schools for the purpose of increasing the extent to which disabled pupils are able to take advantage of education and benefits, facilities or services provided or offered by the schools;

(c) improve the delivery to disabled pupils of information which is readily accessible to pupils who are not disabled.

Have your say on the proposal to expand St. Nicholas School by a further 1FE from September 2018

Mar 1 2017 to Mar 29 2017
Education and learning

St Nicholas School is a special community school for boys and girls of primary age, between 4 – 11 years old, with a range of needs including moderate learning difficulties, communication difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders.

Currently, the school has a maximum capacity of 132 pupils. The school currently has 13 classrooms and pupils are grouped in small classes of around 10 pupils. Each class has a teacher and 2 teaching assistants.

The school is located at Reedham Drive, Purley, CR8 4DS. The school was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2014.

In January 2016 the Council’s Cabinet Committee approved the proposal to permanently expand St Nicholas School by 1 form of entry (FE) from September 2017.This means that approximately an additional 56 pupils, aged 4-11,  will be offered a school place over a 7 year period from September 2017. Due to increased demand for SEN places, and financial viability, the Council agreed that statutory consultation can take place on the proposed permanent expansion of St Nicholas special school by a further 1FE from September 2018.

Within a borough that prides itself on balancing work and life, there should be plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved, however casually in the ‘Croydon scene’ or simply take some time to enjoy the fun on offer.

The vision for Croydon’s parks and spaces is to ensure that these highly valued assets are maintained for future generations and we aim to achieve this by moving away from the traditional models of delivery. We have big ideas for the future of our parks:

  • We want to continue to enable volunteers and friends of parks groups to participate, shape and even take over the management of assets in parks where they have the commitment to do so
  • We want to continue to use our parks and open spaces to encourage healthier lifestyles
  • We want our parks and open spaces to provide the space for exciting cultural events that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors to our borough

Our parks have so much potential and we want to know what you think!

Have your say on changes to our housing register rules and priorities

Jun 14 2016 to Jul 10 2016
Housing

The council wishes to engage with residents, existing social housing tenants, housing associations, voluntary and community groups to find out what they think of its proposals to reduce homelessness.

We are proposing to change the following in relation to Croydon's housing register:

  1. To give a higher priority to people that respond to help offered by the Council's Gateway & Welfare Service to prevent their homelessness. For example, by accepting an offer of private rented accommodation and receiving support, and avoiding long stays in temporary accommodation.
     
  2. Ensure that council and housing association homes are given to people that have lived in the borough for at least three years (the current rule is one year) unless exempt.
     
  3. Introduce an online bidding system for council and housing association homes, called "Choice Based Lettings". This would mean that people that have applied for housing and placed on the waiting list would "bid" for homes online rather than waiting for the council to make them an offer of a new home.  Choice based lettings enables people to make decisions over where they live, to exercise choice, and help promotes community cohesion. 

To take part in this engagement, please follow the link to the survey below.

The responses we receive will be analysed and will inform the consultation which will assist the Council in deciding whether or not the proposals to change the housing waiting list rules are amended and/or into practice.

You can find a summary of the current housing waiting list rules here.

You can download a copy of the current housing waiting list rules (the Council's Housing Allocations Scheme) here

If you need any of the information or the questionnaire in a different format, please call 020 8726 6100 or email hsg-rehousing@croydon.gov.uk
