Consultation launched by Harrow Borough Council over school expansion plans
People are being given the chance to have their say about plans to expand a dozen primary schools.
Harrow Borough Council has launched a consultation on its second phase of school expansion in order to meet the growing demand for places.
The schools earmarked for expansion in 2014 are:
Aylward Primary School in Stanmore
Belmont Primary School in Wealdstone
Grange Primary School and Norbury School in Harrow
Pinner Wood School in Pinner.
The council is also proposing seven other schools to expand in 2015. These are:
Cannon Lane First and Cannon Lane Junior School, in Pinner
Kenmore Park Infant and Nursery School and Kenmore Park Junior in Harrow
Newton Farm Nursery Infant and Junior School in South Harrow
Priestmead Primary School and Nursery in Kenton
St Anselm’s Catholic Primary School in Harrow
St John Fisher Catholic Primary School in Pinner
Whitchurch First School and Whitchurch Junior School in Stanmore
The first phase of the expansion plan is already underway with eight schools permanently expanded from the start of this school year.
The second phase of the plans will be paid for with government funding, including £30 million from the Government’s Targeted Basic Needs fund.
This will allow the council to provide 3,000 places in primary, secondary and special educational needs schools by 2015.
Those interested in taking part in the consultation have until October 18 to respond and can do so by clicking here.
