A report seeking approval for a change of age range at Brownsover Community Infant school from age 3-7 to 3-11 and associated capital works.


Portfolio Holder - Councillor Kam Kaur

Additional documents:


Councillor Kam Kaur (Portfolio Holder for Education) summarised this report which sought the extension of an infant school (Reception to year 2) to become a full primary school (reception to year 6).  In order to ensure Brownsover was then fit to be a full primary school, a range of capital works were required to establish an appropriate key stage 2 learning environment costing £0.96m (£0.51m developer funding and £0.45m from basic needs).


Resolved that Cabinet:


1.     Approves changing the age range at Brownsover Community Infant School from 3 to 7 to 3 to 11 with effect from September 2026

2.     Authorises applying to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator in relation to the proposed reduction in the school’s Published Admission Number (PAN) from 60 to 30 from September 2023

3.     Approves the addition of £0.965 million to the capital programme to deliver the scheme outlined in section 1 of the report, funded from Department for Education capital grant and developer funding.

4.     Authorises the Strategic Director for Communities in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Education to invite tenders and enter into the appropriate contracts on terms and conditions considered acceptable to the Strategic Director for Resources, to make the necessary funding arrangements for these schemes
