Wheelock Primary School- proposal to permanently expand

Wheelock Primary School is part of the Learning for Life Partnership Multi Academy Trust. The school admission number into reception is 45 children. However, due to local demand the school has agreed to admit 60 into reception for September 2022. Due to significant housing developments the demand for additional places in the Sandbach area is expected to continue in the future. The proposal is to permanently expand the school from one and a half form of entry to two forms of entry. This will mean that the school would increase its Published Admission Number (PAN) from 45 to 60 children per year. 

If the proposal goes ahead, 60 places will be offered to children applying for reception places from September 2023. For further information please refer to the consultation document.   

18 July- consultation closed 

All the feedback received will be collated for consideration by the Academy Trust. They will then decide whether to go ahead with the proposal.

If a decision to proceed with the expansion is approved by the trustees, the school will submit either a Fast Track Application or a Full Business Case to the Regional Schools Commissioner.
