School place planning

The Council has a duty to supply high quality school places, in buildings that are fit for purpose and located in the right areas.

To meet the demand for school places, new schools may need to be built or changes made to existing schools. You can find out about these proposals here.

Proposals for new schools

Where the need for a new school is identified, we seek proposals to run the school.

All recent proposals and the closing dates are listed below:

Proposal to establish a new primary school to serve the village of Birstall  - Closed: 4 March 2016

Proposals to make organisational changes to existing schools

We consult with the public on proposals to make organisational changes to existing school, this may be to increase the size of the school or to change the age range. The consultation normally lasts for up to 6 weeks.
