Proposal to increase primary school places at Spring Bank Primary School

Due to recent increases in the number of children aged 0-5 who live in the Hyde Park and Headingley areas, it has been identified that additional school places are required to meet the need for local families.

We are now seeking your views on the following proposal: To expand Spring Bank Primary School from a capacity of 210 to 420 pupils by increasing the admission limit in Reception from 30 to 60 pupils with effect from September 2018. It would take several years for the school to reach full capacity.

The proposal would require additional accommodation, which cannot be provided on the existing Spring Bank site due to site restrictions.  An opportunity has emerged for the council to acquire a suitable site in the vicinity of Spring Bank Primary School which would be of a sufficient size to provide the extra accommodation required.  This site, located on Buckingham Road off Headingley Lane, is currently owned by the Grammar School at Leeds and is known as Rose Court.

The consultation runs from Thursday 25 February to Monday 14 March 2016 at 4pm. We are holding informal drop-in sessions at Spring Bank Primary School where officers will be available to answer any questions or concerns on the following dates and times:

Friday 4 March 8.30am-10.00am (postponed)
Friday 4 March 3.00pm-4.30pm

Wednesday 9 March 8.30am – 10.00am (replacement for postponed session)
Wednesday 9 March 6.00pm-7.30pm

The consultation on the proposal to expand Beecroft Primary School has now closed.

 We are currently collating all of the responses and will provide an update in due course.

At its meeting on 10 February 2016 Leeds City Council’s Executive Board gave approval for the publication of a Statutory Notice to expand Fieldhead Carr Primary School from a capacity of 210 pupils to 420 pupils with an increase in the admission number from 30 to 60 with effect from September 2018. The consultation which took place at Grimes Dyke Primary School was also acknowledged, together with the fact that further school expansions will be required within this area as the East Leeds Extension progresses.

Further details about the Statutory Notice and dates of the Notice Period will be provided shortly.

 

At its meeting on 10 February 2016 Leeds City Council’s Executive Board gave approval for the publication of a Statutory Notice to expand Brudenell Primary School from a capacity of 280 pupils to 420 pupils with an increase in the admission number from 40 to 60 with effect from September 2017.

Further details about the Statutory Notice and dates of the Notice Period will be provided shortly.

An increase to specialist partnership provision at a school where provision is already established is not a prescribed change and would therefore not form part of a Statutory Proposal, however this was included in the consultation on increasing primary places at  the school to give Stakeholders the opportunity to express their views. During consultation support was expressed on the principle of extending the number of specialist places.
