Bradford Council is consulting on its proposed plans to enlarge Low Ash Primary School in Wrose.
The consultation begins on Friday 8 September and runs until 20 October. A full analysis will be carried out and a report with recommendations will be made to the Executive of the Council in December 2017.
The proposal would see the expansion of the school building to enable the Published Admission Number (PAN) to be increased from 60 to 90 pupils. The school currently has capacity for 420 children which would rise to 630 if this proposal is agreed.
The demand for places in this area continues to increase particularly with regard to the number of housing developments approved or awaiting a decision. Some homes have been completed and children have been accommodated in other recently expanded schools.
Coun Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Education, Employment and Skills, said: “Low Ash Primary is a popular school and usually receives more applications than it has places for.
“The school has adequate space for it to be expanded, and subject to the consultation and appropriate planning permission, would look to commence the increased intake with effect from September 2019.”
The consultation is on the Council’s consultation webpage and responses can be made in various ways:
- Online via (SNAP) https://www.bradford.gov.uk/consultations/current-consultations/consultation-and-engagement/
- By email at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “changes to Low Ash Primary School”
