A school for severely disabled children in Wiltshire is to close.
Burton Hill School in Malmesbury caters for 29 students, aged 8 to 19, who have physical disabilities and moderate to severe learning difficulties.
It is closing because the buildings are said to be out of date and student numbers are down.
The school said government policy to include children with special needs into mainstream schools had contributed to the decline.
But Paula Camp, whose 16-year-old daughter Hannah has cerebral palsy and receives specialised care at the school, said: "The county needs to do something about this.
"It needs either to support the schools in their vicinity or to provide other education in the area, which will mean building a new school.
"At the end of the day, it all comes down to money."
The school is run by the Shaftsbury Society, a Christian charity.
