Lady Bankes single 3-form primary school consultation

The council and the Federated Governing Body of Lady Bankes Infant and Nursery School and Lady Bankes Junior School are proposing to join (amalgamate) the 2 schools together to form a single 3-form entry school.

The new school would include pupils from reception (4 to 5-year-olds) through to year 6 (10 to 11-year-olds) and provide the same nursery class provision for children aged 3 to 4-years-old as the Infant and Nursery School currently does (90 places split across morning and afternoon sessions, which includes a number of 30-hours spaces).

The new school would continue to admit up to 90 pupils a year, giving it the same Published Admissions Number (PAN) of the current infant and junior school PANS when combined.

All pupils currently attending both schools, as well as those due to join nursery, reception or year 3 in September 2021, will automatically have places at the new school.

The amalgamation of the schools would have no implications on traffic or site access.

The new school would continue to provide an education that offers equality of opportunity for all regardless of age, gender, and ethnicity, learning ability, religious or social background and attainment, including special needs and disabilities.

Governors believe that bringing the schools together into a single primary school would enable them to improve further and achieve more for our pupils and our community.
