South Baddesley Church of England Primary School – Consultation

Closed on

The proposed change in Pupil Admission Number will allow South Baddesley Church Of England Primary School to offer 22 places in Year R (age 4+)

This expansion will allow South Baddesley Church Of England Primary School to cater for 154 pupils.


Where a Local Authority proposes to permanently enlarge a school’s capacity by 25% or more it must follow a procedure set out by the Department for Education. The primary purpose of this consultation is to seek the view of consultees on the principle of enlarging South Baddesley Church Of England Primary School’s Pupil Admission Number to offer 22 places.

This consultation will run from 2 February to 9 March 2018. Officers will then take into consideration all the consultation responses received before deciding whether the proposal should continue to the formal publication stage. If so, a statutory Public Notice will be published, setting out Hampshire County Council’s intent to enlarge the school. It is anticipated that this will be published in April 2018. After the date of publication there will be a four week period in which any representations can be made to the local authority. After the conclusion of this period the County Council will decide whether or not to proceed with the proposal. It is anticipated that a decision will be made by the end of June 2018.
