Cabinet reports and decisions

13 July 2015 - final decision on the proposal to permanently expand Primrose Hill Primary School.

7 April 2015 - agreement to publish a statutory notice: Stage 2 report on the proposal to expand Primrose Hill Primary School.

12 January 2015 - report and decision to consult: The provision of additional primary school places in Lancashire.

Background

As a result of the recent growth in the number of births in the local area, coupled with the effects of significant housing development, the number of school places currently available will not be enough to meet the increased demand as the children reach school age. Therefore, additional permanent places are needed in the Euxton area.

The cabinet member for children, young people and schools approved the temporary expansion of Euxton Primrose Hill Primary School, on 4 December 2014, to provide an additional 30 places in Reception year in September 2015 for one year only. This temporary expansion will be enabled by using existing accommodation on the site.

On 12 January 2015, the cabinet member for children, young people and schools approved a period of consultation to be undertaken on a proposal to allow a permanent increase in reception intake from 30 to 60 places for September 2016 and beyond to Euxton Primrose Hill Primary School. This will be enabled by providing additional accommodation on the existing school site.
