To agree to expand school place provision at Princess Frederica School for September 2014


(i)         that the permanent expansion of Princess Frederica C of E Primary School by one form of entry from September 2014 is not approved at this time on the grounds of the extent of the impact of the currently proposed scheme on play space at the school during construction pending the adoption by the Executive of a new School Places Strategy;

(ii)        that the hard work of school staff, the governing body of the school and the diocese in having worked with council officers on this challenging expansion scheme be recognised, assuring the school of the council’s ongoing commitment to working in partnership;

(iii)       that a new School Places Strategy be developed in 2014 to provide a up-to-date and robust framework for school expansion decisions and that the expansion of the school be reconsidered in 2015 in the light of need and this new framework.
