Issue details

Expansion of Sompting Village Primary School

The County Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for all children who need a place.  Due to growing demand for school places in the Sompting area there is a need to expand the local Primary School to accommodate additional pupils.  In March 2017 the Cabinet Member for Finance approved an expansion of Sompting Village Primary School to increase its admission number from 60 pupils in each year group to 90 pupils in each year group with effect from September 2019.

 

The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to approve the allocation of the funds required to enable the expansion project to proceed.
