Due to growing demand for school places there is a need to expand Shelley Primary School to accommodate additional pupils. The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills took a decision during March 2019 (Decision ref ES20 (18/19)) to approve the allocation of £2.446m from the Basic Need Capital Programme to fund expansion works at the school. This will enable the provision of 140 additional places at the school to meet the demand of growing pupil numbers in the Broadbridge Heath and Horsham area.
As part of the decision the Cabinet Member delegated authority to the then Executive Director Economy, Infrastructure and Environment to award the building contract to carry out the necessary works. The responsibilities of this role are now being undertaken by the Acting Chief Executive.
The Acting Chief Executive has approved the award of the construction contract to expand Shelley Primary School to Sunninghill Construction for the sum of £1,760,230 which is affordable within the overall budget for this project (£2,808,000).
