Elworth Church of England 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 Sandbach in response to housing developments.

The data produced indicates the need for an additional 105 school places (years Reception to year 6) which would provide 15 more reception class places from September 2020.

Following discussions with the local schools,  the authority has issued a public notice regarding the proposal and a 4 week representation period will run from 22 November 2018 to 20 December 2018.
