School Estate update

All parents and carers should have received a letter in their child’s school bag today. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the meetings, e-mailed submissions or wrote letters. A report has now been prepared and it will be discussed at a special meeting of the Education and Children’s Services Committee on 1st March 2017. You can view the full report here. TOA_16_Consultation_Report

The Report recommends

  • That St Peter’s School remains at its present site and officers to assess how best to alleviate short term capacity pressures at St. Peter’s School;
  • 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.
