We want the views of school leaders on our proposed Schools Organisation Strategy. The survey is open from Friday 10th May until Friday 7 June.

Warrington Borough Council has a strategic responsibility for ensuring there are sufficient school places available for children and young people in the borough.

Warrington’s first ever School Organisation Strategy is essential for the strategic planning of school places. It provides guidance to school leaders and governors on how the Council determines future place needs and how the Council works with schools to ensure they are informed about future demand so that leaders can effectively manage resources.

It outlines the current and projected pupil populations in Warrington, alongside the principles we have adopted to secure the demand for school places. It also defines the main challenges that the council will face in meeting demand for school places over the next five years as we aspire to offer children their first choice of school.

We are seeking feedback from school leaders regarding the content of the strategy so that we can be confident that the document meets its aims.
