Proposal to expand St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School

Ends Friday 19 July 2019

On 23 May the Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills approved a period of consultation on a proposal to expand St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School, Whitefields Road, Solihull from September 2020.

St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School, judged to be a good school by Ofsted, is the Council’s and the Catholic Diocesan Education Service’s preferred location to meet the growing demand for Catholic school places.  This expansion will increase the capacity of the school from 210 places to 420 places plus 26 nursery places.  More information about the proposal can be found in our consultation document.

Additional information about the supply and demand for school places in Solihull is published in our School Organisation Plan 2018 and we have produced a fact sheet to provide further background information about this school expansion.

As part of the consultation process we are holding two consultation ‘drop in’ events at the school, where you can talk to council officers about what is being proposed, view the plans and ask questions about the proposal.

Proposal to extend the lower age range of Yew Tree Primary School

Ends Friday 28 June 2019

Solihull Council on behalf of the governing body of Yew Tree Primary School is proposing to lower the age range of the school to include 2 year olds.

The proposed change will come into effect on 31 July 2019.

In April 2019, the Governors of Yew Tree Primary School resolved to become an academy as part of the Tudor Grange Multi Academy Trust.

As part of the academy conversion process the Governing Body will need to formalise their Early Years Provision by extending the age range of the school from 3 to 11 years to 2 to 11 years.

This proposal seeks to make a technical change only, and makes no change to the provision already offered by the school. As the school is currently a community school only the Council can publish proposals to make this change.

You can view a copy of the proposal document for Yew Tree Primary School.

We are keen to receive your views on this proposal.  If you wish to object or comment on the proposal for Yew Tree Primary School you can do so by writing to the School Place Planning Team, Children’s Services and Skills, Council House, Manor Square, Solihull, B91 3QB or by emailing researchandpolicy@solihull.gov.uk. Objections or comments must be received by 5.00pm, Friday 28 June 2019.
