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

Consultation on a proposal to expand primary school places and establish SEN provision at Beeston Hill St Luke’s Church of England Primary School

The number of 0-5 year old children living in the Holbeck and Hunslet areas has risen significantly in recent years and this is increasing the demand for school places locally. In response, Leeds City Council is already implementing a previously approved proposal to provide 15 extra school places per year at Hunslet Moor Primary School from September 2018. However, demographic analysis based on National Health Service (NHS) data of children aged under 5, has highlighted a need for a further 15 primary school places per year group in Holbeck. The sustained rise in the birth rate across Leeds coupled with demand from new housing in the Holbeck area further reinforces the view that additional places are needed from 2019 onwards to ensure a sufficient long term supply of good school places.

Holbeck has been identified by the Local Authority’s Complex Needs team as an area with a deficit of provision for children with complex learning needs, including Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), compounded by a parallel rise in demand for primary resourced provision from families with children who have Education, Health and Care plans. This proposal would prevent children living in this area from having to travel long distances across the city to access an appropriate learning place and would enable children to be fully included in the life of the school whilst benefiting from the specialist support they require.

The proposal

It is proposed that Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary School should expand from a capacity of 315 to 420 pupils, and increase the admission number from 45 to 60 in reception from September 2019, creating 15 additional places. The school would grow incrementally, from the lower year groups. It would, therefore, take several years for the school to reach its full capacity. It is also proposed that a new resourced provision for approximately 8 pupils with complex learning needs, such as ASC, should be established at Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary School from September 2019.

Reasons for proposing the expansion of Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary School

Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary is an ‘Outstanding’ school which is popular with local families and is situated within an area of high demographic need. The school’s governing body supports consultation on the proposal in order to meet the needs of their local community and is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people.

 How can stakeholders put their views forward?

  • You may attend one of our informal drop-in sessions at Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary School where you will be able to ask questions and find out more about the proposal. The details of the sessions are:
  • Wed 13 September 2017 4.15pm-5.15pm
  • Tuesday 19 September 2017 at 8.30am-9.30am and 2:45pm – 4:15pm

The consultation booklet, along with information on the progress of the proposal, is available at http://www.leeds.gov.uk/residents/Pages/Currentschoolsconsultation.aspx

The consultation on a proposal to expand primary school places at Allerton Church of England Primary School has now ended. The consultation responses are currently being analysed and a further update on next steps will be given in due course.

Update 6 December 2017 – A report detailing the outcomes of the consultation will be presented to Leeds City Council’s Executive Board on 13 December 2017. A link to the report can be found here. We will update this page with the outcome of Executive Board’s decision following this meeting.

Update 9 November 2017 – It had been anticipated that the outcome of the consultation would be reported to Leeds City Council’s Executive Board by October. However due to the commencement of a consultation on a separate proposal in the Roundhay area we now need to consider what impact that proposal might have on places in the Alwoodley area, which is in part due to the interaction between these two areas. In addition to this, a number of key issues were raised in the consultation which we continue to investigate. It is our intention to report the outcomes of the consultation at Allerton C of E to Executive Board on 13 December 2017 following which a further update will be given.
