Consultation on a proposal to expand Hunslet St Mary’s Primary School from 2017

Due to a  growing level of need for school places in the Hunslet school planning area, it has been identified that additional school places are required permanently to meet  future demand from local families. In developing a proposal to provide additional school places we have considered local demographics, the preference patterns of families, highways issues and the location of any new housing.

We are now seeking your views on the following proposal: To expand Hunslet St Mary’s Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 210 to 315 pupils and to increase the admission limit in reception from 30 to 45 pupils from September 2017.

This consultation will run from Monday 25 April to Friday 20 May 2016 at 4pm. During this time there will be drop-in sessions at the school where you can have your say and find out more about the proposal.

The drop-in sessions will be held at Hunslet St Mary’s CoE Primary School on the following dates:

  • Friday 29th April, 8:30 – 10:00am
  • Wednesday 4th May, 3:30 – 5:00pm
  • Thursday 19th May, 3:15 – 4:30pm

  1. We are based at Stringer House on Lupton Street and therefore it would be good to discuss how the proposed extension might effect us and access to our office. Also I clicked on the survey link and it says that no surveys are available.

    • Hello,

      As the proposal is at an early stage, an accommodation solution has not yet been determined to create the necessary additional space required. A detailed design for the new building would need to be developed should a decision be taken to proceed with the proposed expansion. However, if you able to attend one of our consultation drop in sessions we will have council officers from the Sufficiency and Planning, Built Environment and Highways teams available to answer any questions regarding the planning and consultation process that would follow if a scheme does go ahead. The drop in sessions will be held at St Mary’s Primary school on the following dates/times;

      29th April 2016 – 8:30am till 10am
      4th May 2016 – 3:30pm till 5pm
      19th May 2016 – 3:15pm till 4:30pm

      The Talking Point survey can be accessed here;

      Thank you,
      The Sufficiency and Planning Team
