The public gets its say on a new £6m complex needs school for the area when a drop-in event is held at Old Buckenham Primary School between 3pm and 7.30pm on Tuesday.
It is the latest stage of long-running efforts to find a new home for Attleborough’s Chapel Road School.
A site next to Old Buckenham’s community primary and high schools is now favoured for a new building which will cater for 110 pupils with complex needs between the ages of three and 19 years old.
Chapel Road School was due to be rebuilt under the scrapped Building Schools for the Future programme and work has been underway for several years to find land and funding.
Norfolk County Council has already committed £4m and has been exploring possible sites in the south of the county.
In July, the scheme gained momentum when the Department for Education agreed to contribute £3.8m to fund extra places at the school. The county council is proposing to commit a further £2.2m of funding.
Any new school would not fully open until 2016. The school would then move from its current home in Attleborough.
Karin Heap, headteacher of Chapel Road School, said: “Our children need this new school so that we are able to best support their needs and ensure they can continue to receive an outstanding education.
“A site in Old Buckenham would be a fantastic base. Our very strong links with the Attleborough community however will remain.”
Norfolk County Council will be holding a drop-in event so residents can discuss the proposals. The council has also written to households to outline the proposal and invite comments.
Mick Castle, cabinet member for education and schools, said: “Rebuilding Chapel Road is a priority and it has taken significant effort from those involved to get this far. We want to ensure children with complex needs can be taught as near to their homes as possible.”
