Thank you for your correspondents and responses to our New Lubbesthorpe consultation.  

Summary Response from consultation 

The proposal under consideration is the introduction of an additional form of entry into Early Years Foundation Stage. This would mean three classes of 30 pupils in Early Years Foundation Stage (there is currently two classes per year group) and then as these pupils move up through the school, there would be an extra class each year, expanding the overall capacity of the school to 630 pupils. This will now be delayed and reconsidered in the future taking into consideration market forces.


Building works would be required to provide additional classrooms and learning spaces to accommodate the extra pupils.  Additional teaching and non-teaching staff would also be recruited.  


The proposal includes:

  • New classrooms, additional teaching rooms (for groups etc.), staff spaces and everything associated with such an expansion
  • Additional work to areas such as playground, landscaping, fencing, access onto the school site etc.


The Governing Body is clear that any proposals should maintain the amount of external play space for current and future pupils.


Externally the staff car park will be expanded with a further space, the playground will be extended.


Proposed Timeline - Delayed to be reconsidered in the future
