The Council plans to double the number of pupils enrolling at Davies Lane School from this September, which involves building on the Pastures site to increase the school’s capacity. There are no plans available yet for what the new buildings would look like. A public consultation is happening now (deadline is 5 February) so please feel free to make your own response on the Council website, and if you are a FARA member please let us know what you think as we will be making our own response and would like to hear from as many residents as possible.
FARA is due to meet a senior school governor next week and we will update our members, and this website, with any useful information we may receive.
From the consultation document:
“The proposal for Davies Lane Primary School is to enlarge the school to increase the physical capacity by two forms of entry, utilising the Pastures site. The number of pupils to be admitted to the school into Reception from 1 September 2012, and subsequent years, would increase from 60 to 120. The number of pupils to be admitted to the nursery will remain at 45 full time equivalent places.”
