Consultation on a proposal to expand primary school places at Allerton Church of England Primary School

In order to address a growing pressure on school places, Leeds City Council has permanently increased primary places across the Alwoodley and Roundhay areas over a number of years and more recently additional places (bulge cohorts) have been agreed at a number of local schools on a temporary basis. This includes Allerton C of E Primary School.  We anticipate that there will be a continued demand on places and as we have provided physical accommodation to enable the school to admit additional children on three separate occasions, it is appropriate for us to consult on whether this should become a permanent change, as the statutory guidance from the Department for Education recommends.

 The consultation is on a proposal to expand primary provision at Allerton C of E Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils, with an increase to the admission number from 60 to 90 in reception from September 2018. The consultation period will run from Mon 26 June 2017 to 4pm on Fri 21 July 2017 and during this time there will be three drop-in sessions at the school which will be open to parents, local residents and other interested parties where you can have your say or find out more. The dates of the drop-in sessions are as follows:

Monday 26 June – 5:00pm-7:00pm;
Monday 3 July – 8:30am-9:30am;
Thursday 13 July – 2:45pm-4:00pm
