Extra school places for Cheltenham
Action is being taken to stop children in Cheltenham being left with no primary school to go to next year.
90 extras places are being made available in the town to help with a predicted rise in applications from September 2012.
Gloucestershire county council plans to add 15 permanent school places and 75 temporary places and has launched a consultation with parents and schools.
The rise in population numbers is expected to be a particular issue in the Whaddon, Swindon Road and Hester’s Way areas in the next few years.
The sites being put forward for the 15 extra permanent places are: Oakwood School, Dunalley, Leckhampton C of E, St James C of E, Hesters Way, Greatfield Park, Lakeside and Warden Hill.
The sites being considered for the 75 temporary places are Hesters Way, Naunton Park, Leckhampton C of E, Greatfield Park, Lakeside Primary, Warden Hill and Holy Apostles C of E.
The consultation will run until the end of February - to take part in the consultation, download or fill in the questionnaire online go to www.gloucestershire.gov.uk - or call 01452 426783 .
