Decision:

To approve the statutory notice published by Wiltshire Council on 1 February 2018.

 

The notice proposes the enlargement of the school to provide a 3 Form of Entry (3FE), 630 place primary school. It is proposed to permanently increase the Published Admission Number (PAN) from 1 September 2019 (subject to planning approval) when an increase of 30 additional pupils will be admitted into the Reception Year. Up to 90 Reception age pupils will be admitted in each subsequent year.

 

The decision was made on 30 April 2018 and comes into force on 9 May 2018.

Reasons for the decision:

Alternative options considered:

In January 2017, the Council was advised by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) that an Army Battalion (REME) is to be relocated to MOD Lyneham in Spring 2019. This will mean that approximately 450-500 armed forces personnel and their families will be accommodated at MOD Lyneham or in the immediate surrounding area. Alongside this, the MOD is leasing out up to 100 empty service family houses at MOD Lyneham for private rental.

The combined impact will be the need to provide an additional 5/6 primary classes. Additional housing development is also expected in the Lyneham area. It is therefore   proposed that an additional 1FE (210 place) expansion is provided at Lyneham Primary, to be delivered in part by Easter 2019.
