  • That officers carry out an options appraisal to determine the long term future of education provision at the existing St Peter’s School site and the possibility of building a new St. Peter’s School on a new location, subject to a suitable site being identified in the school zone and sufficient capital funding becoming available. Further, that officers to present the findings of this options appraisal exercise to a future meeting of this Committee in 2017.

This means that officers will work with the school community to address the urgent need for additional appropriate accommodation for our children.
