Kesgrave: Primary school places could increase
PARENTS are being asked for their views on how to provide additional primary school places in Kesgrave.
Suffolk County Council is running a period of public consultation until 15 December 2010 to gather views before any decisions are taken.
Consultation booklets setting out options for the future have been sent to parents, carers, staff and governors.
To meet future demand, the County Council’s preferred option would be to increase the number of places at Heath Primary School from 420 to 630 places.
The option also proposes the transfer of part of the current Cedarwood Community Primary School catchment area to Heath Primary School catchment area which would come into effect from September 2012.

County Councillor Graham Newman, Portfolio Holder for Children and Young Peoples’ Services said: “There is an ongoing demand for additional primary school places in the Kesgrave area which we need to address.
“It is important to now get the views of parents, staff and other local people before the County Council’s Cabinet considers which option it wants to develop.”
