Data shows there is significant pressure on primary school places in the Roundhay area. Following a stakeholder engagement event and a period of on line discussion to identify a suitable solution to the issue the following proposal has been developed:
- To expand Gledhow Primary School from 2 form entry (60 places per year group) to 3 form entry (90 places per year group)
- To expand Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Primary School from 2 form entry (60 places per year group) to 3 form entry (90 places per year group)
A number of other options were discussed however many of these proved not to be viable due to constraints on site, cost, distance to area of pressure and highways issues. We are now taking comments on the proposals set out above. We are arranging a series of drop in sessions in the area to allow parents, residents and other interested parties to discuss the issues in person with officers from the school place capacity planning team, highways, planning and built environment teams. We will publicise these dates as they become available.
This phase of the consultation will run until the end of the summer term on 25th July. Following that a report on the consultation will be submitted to the Executive Board (the decision making body of the council) sometime in the autumn.
The previous discussion post is available below for viewing however to preserve the integrity of the thread we will only be approving comments on this post from now on. Please comment on this post.
