Consultation on a proposal to expand Moor Allerton Hall Primary School

Latest update – Leeds City Council’s Executive Board will consider a report on the outcomes of the consultation at its meeting on 27 June 2018. A link to the report is here.

Roundhay has been experiencing pressure on primary school places for some time. Previous proposals had suggested bringing together Moor Allerton Hall Primary School with Allerton Grange school, to form an all through-school with four forms of entry in the primary phase. However in response to concerns from some parents and the school’s leadership about timings and the scale of change an amended proposal is now out for consultation.

We are proposing a permanent expansion of Moor Allerton Hall Primary School from 2 forms of entry (60 places) to 3 forms of entry (90 places) from September 2019.

The consultation will run from 23 March 2018 to 4pm on 4 May 2018 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.

All meetings will be held at Moor Allerton Hall Primary School.

Consultation on a proposal to join together Moor Allerton Hall Primary School with Allerton Grange High School from September 2018

In response to an ongoing need to provide additional primary school places in the Roundhay area, Leeds City Council is bringing forward a creative and innovative proposal to provide an additional 420 permanent school places (60 per year group) in the Roundhay and Moortown area. Leeds City Council is proposing that Allerton Grange High School and Moor Allerton Hall Primary School join together to form a through school for children aged 3-19 years.

The first phase of the consultation process will run from Thursday 12 October to Wednesday 29 November, as part of this there will be several drop-in sessions. These events provide an opportunity for questions and conversation and allow us to gather and share information on an informal one to one basis.

Following this all the issues raised will be reported to executive board who will then decide whether to progress to the formal, statutory part of the consultation process which we anticipate taking place in December and January, but we will update this timeline when we have definite dates.

The dates of the drop in sessions are as follows:

Moor Allerton Hall Primary School Thursday 19th October 2017 5.00pm – 7.00pm
North East Learning Centre, Talbot Avenue Wednesday 1st November 2017 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Moor Allerton Hall Primary School

Punjabi & Urdu interpreter present

Wednesday 15th November 2017 8.45am – 9.30am
