Shavington Primary School -proposed expansion

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 Shavington in response to increasing pupil populations.

The data produced indicates the need for an extra 210 school places (reception to year 6) which, if agreed, would provide 30 more reception class places from September 2018. The local authority has therefore considered the current capacity of schools in Shavington and their potential for expansion using each school’s site information.  

Following discussions with the local authority, the governing bodies/academy trusts considered the need for extra school places in the area and resolved to publish expansion proposals for Shavington Primary Academy.
