PUPILS cut a ribbon to mark the formal opening of their new special school in Wilmslow.

The newly expanded Springfield School site has created up to 80 much-needed local school spaces for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The satellite site has been designed and built with special consideration for the access, safeguarding, and sensory requirements of pupils aged four to 18.

A handover ceremony was held with pupils given the honour of formally opening their new school.

Students, alongside other dignitaries, cut the ribbon to officially kickstart a new era of learning, focused on being healthy, safe, both enjoying and achieving, making a contribution, and entering the adult world with multiple life and education skills.

Kirsty Arthur, head of the school, said: “The first two classes have settled into their new school exceptionally well and we look forward to gradually increasing numbers over the next 12 months. The Wilmslow community have been extremely welcoming, and we look forward to building relationships for the future.’’
