Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: Yes

Purpose of Report: To request the approval of a £500,000 Basic Need budget for remodelling of buildings at Fulford School which will enable the school to take 270 pupils in year 7 in September 2020. To also approve a £550,000 Highways budget for improvements to bus access and egress on the school site.


The Executive Member will be asked to approve the Basic Need and Highways budget, as outlined in the Purpose of Report.




                      i.         Approved the allocation of £500k of basic need funding to enable remodelling of areas of the existing Fulford School building to accommodate additional pupils above the school’s planned admission number for September 2020.
