About our proposals to expand Brakensdale Primary School.
A statutory notice was published on 29 January 2019 and a four week statutory consultation period ran from 29 January to 26 February 2019. As no objections were received during the statutory representation period, the Strategic Director for People Services was able to approve the expansion of Brackensdale Primary School through a non-key decision dated 7 March 2019. The expansion of Brackensdale Primary School will go ahead from September 2019.
Modification to Decision: Expansion of Brackensdale Primary School with an increase in admission number from 60 to 75 from September 2019
Derby City Council, with the full support of Brackensdale Primary School, has agreed a modification to the implementation date for the increase in the school's admission number from 60 to 75 as follows:
- Original Decision: September 2019 Implementation
- Modification to Decision: September 2020 Implementation
Following statutory consultation, a decision was taken to increase Brackensdale Primary School's admission number from 60 to 75 from September 2019 to accommodate pupils from a major housing development at Manor Kingsway, which is within Brackensdale Primary School’s catchment area.
There has been a change to the estimated timescales for building and occupying future properties on the housing development site. A modification has, therefore, been made to the implementation date for the increase in admission number which will move from September 2019 to September 2020. The modification aims to ensure that school capacity in the local area aligns with anticipated demand for school places. In determining this modification, consideration has also been given to the number of Reception offers for September 2019 at Brackensdale ER Primary School and other local schools.
The proposal will not impact on current pupils on roll at the school.
