Final week to have your say on Redditch's newest first school

Redditch Editorial 20th Feb, 2024 Updated: 21st Feb, 2024   0

THERE is just one week left for parents to have their say on the new first school to be built in Foxlydiate, Redditch.

This next stage of consultation is asking parents to share their thoughts on the council’s proposal on the age range, size and values of the school.

As per November’s cabinet meeting, it has been agreed Worcestershire County Council will deliver a new first school with nursery, including wrap around provision, and the school will be located on a site off Foxlydiate Lane, in the Webheath.

The new school is required to meet the increased demand for school places which has arisen due to local housing developments.

The school will open initially to reception-aged children and will grow over time as it will take a new cohort of children each September.

Coun Tracey Onslow, cabinet member for education, said: “Making sure children across the county have access to good quality education, which allows them to go on and reach their full potential, is a long-term priority for the county council.

“Our team works hard to consistently analyse the need for school places across the county. We are looking to deliver a new first school in Redditch to help us meet the need for first school provision in the town.

“We’ve had a good response so far, and we want to make sure as many parents as possible can have their say, so please do visit our dedicated website pages and fill out the form.”
