Residents invited to give their views on school extension - 02/02/17
Residents are being asked to offer their views on plans to extend Kingswood Parks Primary School.

In order to meet the already growing and projected pupil place application increase, the council plans to expand the school to provide places for 630 pupils and 52 (full-time equivalent) FTE nursery places.

Currently the school has a capacity of 390 pupils and a 39 FTE place nursery following some minor re-modelling works in summer 2016 where temporary mobile accommodation was brought in to meet the high demand for places.

Consultation for the plans are split into two parts. The first part is an opportunity to comment on the proposed design of the extensions ahead of a planning application to the council. Plans and proposals will be on display at drop-in sessions:

  • Tuesday 7 February, 3.30 - 6.30pm at Kingswood Parks Health Centre
  • Wednesday 8 February, 2.30 - 5:30pm at Kingswood Parks Primary School

    Staff will be on hand to answer any questions about the proposals and there will be opportunities to feed back.

    The second part of consultation is for Department for Education approval to the expansion. Feedback on this section of the consultation is open for a six-week period from 7 February to 21 March and can be given at the drop-in sessions. Alternatively, to request more information and a feedback form, residents can call the team on 01482 612 550 or email

    Councillor Phil Webster, Portfolio Holder for Learning, Skills and Safeguarding Children said:
    ""The plans to expand Kingswood Park Primary School will ensure that there are enough places to accommodate the growing number of families moving to this popular area.

    ""I would encourage as many residents as possible to feed back on the plans and ensure that their views are heard.""

    If plans are approved, it is expected that extension will be in place for September 2018.

    The extension will provide additional classrooms, group rooms, play space, small hall, studio, staff room and associated toilet provision. It will also see the existing hall extended, the existing Foundation Unit remodelled and the external play areas, car park and multi-use games area altered.
