Final decision on the proposed enlargement of Cradle Hill Community Primary School.
12.1 The Lead Member for Education and Inclusion, Special Educational Needs and Disability considered a report by the Director of Children’s Services which sought approval to publish statutory notices in respect of a proposal to enlarge Cradle Hill Community Primary School for the 2017/18 academic year.
12.2 Written comments were received from Councillor Carolyn Lambert, Local Member, expressing her concerns over traffic and parking congestions resulting from the proposed expansion.
12.3 RESOLVED to:
1) authorise the publication of statutory notices in respect of a proposal to enlarge Cradle Hill Community Primary School by one form of entry per year group (30 places per year group, 210 places overall) for the 2017/18 academic year; and
2) delegate authority to the Director of Children’s Services to amend the proposals prior to their publication if required.
12.4 The Council has a legal duty to ensure there are sufficient school places in Seaford to meet demand. It is believed that expansion of Cradle Hill Community Primary School is the best option due to the popularity of the school and the capacity of its site.
