The council is the strategic commissioner of school places in the borough. We have a legal duty to ensure there are sufficient and suitable school places for all children of compulsory school age.
Grappenhall Heys Community Primary school (GHCPS) has been identified as being best placed to cater for an area of population growth and demand in Warrington by increasing its current capacity.
The investment of £3million will be made to expand the school, from a one form entry to a two form entry (210 additional primary school places) and will ensure we have sufficient school places to meet the projected demand from local housing developments from September 2022.
This formal consultation is to ensure that parents/carers of pupils at the school and other interested parties have the opportunity to put forward their views on the proposals.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a respond to the consultation to expand Grappenhall Heys Community Primary School (GHCPS).
The council has carefully reviewed the responses to the consultation to expand GHCPS and provided a response to the comments made.
While taking full account of the objections, we have concluded that these are outweighed by the benefits of the plans. The proposal to expand GHCPS has, therefore, been approved.
The prescribed persons have four weeks to appeal to the schools adjudicator as set out in the Prescribed Alterations to Maintained Schools.
