The expansion of several schools in Crawley and Mid Sussex, including a new school in Haywards Heath, are being proposed to cater for an increase in the number of families with young children.
The number of children has been rising across West Sussex for several years and Department for Education projections show that, by 2023, the number of primary aged pupils will be nine per cent higher than it was last year.
To cope with this future demand the following proposals have been put forward for consultation by West Sussex County Council.
From September 2016
From September 2019
A number of drop-in sessions for people who would like to come along and discuss the proposals in person will be held. Details are as follows:
The County Council is working in partnership with the schools involved to coordinate this consultation exercise on their behalf. The individual governing bodies or, in the case of academies, the academy trusts of each of the existing schools will make the final decision on whether schools expand. The Secretary of State for Education will appoint the sponsor of any new school.
Consultation booklets are available from any of the schools involved and local libraries. People can also go to www.westsussex.gov.uk and search for ‘consultation hub’ to respond online.
People can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0330 222 3046.
The closing date for comments is 30 November 2015.
