Primary School Expansion Programme

Closed 30 Jun 2011

Opened 16 May 2011

Feedback expected 13 Sep 2011

Overview

In recent years there has been a marked upturn in the numbers of children born in the Borough, we have already had to increase capacity during the last two years to meet the additional demand for places at reception year. This increased demand is projected to continue at least up to 2013 and probably beyond.  The Local Authority has a core duty to ensure there are sufficient places to meet the needs of its children and families and therefore it is obliged to plan for the expansion of its school capacity.

Why We Are Consulting

We have to increase the number of primary school places to meet additional demand. We set out specific proposals for school expansions in the consultation document. These places should come into operation for September 2012. We believe that the proposals should ensure that every Sutton child requiring a school place will get one, however, there may be issues that we have missed or given insufficient weight. We want to hear your views as to how best we might develop the additional capacity required.
