Council invites comments on Slade Green schools proposals
11 June 2012
Parents and carers are being invited to comment on proposals for two Slade Green schools.
The London Borough of Bexley plans to expand and refurbish Slade Green Infant School and Slade Green Junior School, to create new pupil places and provide first class educational facilities.
Both schools will become primary schools with two forms of entry in each year, admitting children aged four to 11 from September 2014.
It is also proposed that Slade Green Junior School will become part of the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation, allowing children to move onto the secondary phase of the Crayford Academy.
The plans are part of the wider Slade Green regeneration project, which will potentially see the construction of around 380 new homes and community facilities.
Cllr John Fuller, Cabinet Member for Education said: "These proposals will create much needed pupil places in Slade Green, as well as offering a greater choice of primary education and the quality facilities our pupils deserve. It is important that local parents and carers have their say in the changes to their children's schools."
Consultation on the proposals will run from Monday 11 June to Monday 23 July 2012.
Two drop-in consultation events will take place at both schools on Tuesday 26 June. The sessions will run from 3pm - 4.30pm at Slade Green Junior School and 5pm - 6.30pm at Slade Green Infant School. Parents, carers and teachers can drop in at any time to discuss the proposals and ask questions.
Officers from the London Borough of Bexley and Head Teachers from the schools will attend the sessions. The Senior Management Team from the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation will also attend the session at Slade Green Junior School.
Information on the proposals is available using the links on the right hand side.
Comments can be given on paper or online. Copies of the consultation document and questionnaire will be sent out to the parents and carers of Slade Green Infant School and Slade Green Junior School pupils. Paper copies will also be available from Slade Green Library in the Howbury Centre and from Council offices. They can also be found using the links on the right hand side.
