The Local Authority has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for children resident in its area. An analysis of the latest pupil forecasts has identified the need to provide additional primary school places in Congleton in response to increasing pupil populations.
The Local Authority has therefore considered the current capacity of schools in Alsager and their potential for expansion using each school’s site information. Following discussions with the Local Authority, the governing body of Cranberry Academy have considered the need for extra school places in the area and have resolved to publish an expansion proposal for their school.
Further information on the need and rational for the additional places can be found in the consultation document (PDF, 269KB)
