Members considered a report which provided options for the provision of additional primary school place in the Southbank area of York, following a consistent rise in demand, alongside pressures and trends in the area.

It was noted that Ward Members had been consulted on a range of options and that they had recently held a well attended ward meeting to consult with residents on this issue.

The options considered had been:

(a)     provide no additional places in the Southbank area

(b)     build accommodation for 210 (1 form entry each year) additional places, as an annex to Scarcroft Primary on the Millthorpe School site

(c)     build a 210 (1 form entry) place primary school on the former Terry’s Car Park site at Nun Ings

(d)     build a 315 (1.5 form entry) place school on land behind The Grove and The Square off Tadcaster Road

(e)     build a 630 (3 form entry) place school at either Bishopthorpe Infant or Archbishop of York CE Junior school sites

 

The Executive Member expressed her appreciation for the contributions received to date in relation to the proposed options. However, in view of earlier comments and to enable consideration of the full range of options she proposed undertaking further informal public consultation, prior to the Executive meeting in March. This would then enable formal consultation to be undertaken on a preferred solution.

Officers also welcomed the opportunity to extend the consultation and confirmed that extension of the existing school would also be re-examined.

Resolved:  That the Executive agree to:

(i)           Undertake further informal public consultation to examine all available options prior to undertaking formal public consultation on the options for the provision of school places in the Southbank area lasting four week;

 

(ii)          Identify option (b) as the council’s current preferred option, for the purposes of that consultation;

 

(iii)                Ask the Director of Children’s Services, Education and Skills to bring a report to a future meeting of the Executive describing the outcome of that consultation and making a recommendation for a proposal to be subject to statutory consultation. 1.

 

Reason:     This will fulfil the LA’s legal obligation to ensure there is appropriate consultation that allows for the most effective solution to be identified.
