The Abbey Multi Academy Trust and governing body of St Chad’s Church of England Primary School, in partnership with Leeds City Council, are proposing to expand St Chad’s Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 210 to 420 pupils and to increase the admission limit in reception from 30 to 60 pupils from September 2019.

The consultation period lasts for four weeks between Monday 16 January 2017 and Friday 10 February 2017.   During this period views on the proposal are being sought from parents, staff, residents and other local stakeholders.

As part of the consultation, Leeds City Council is also seeking views on a change to a small section of the West Park playing fields adjacent to the school, which would be required to provide a shared use sports pitch as part of the school expansion scheme.
