A Proposed New Sidney Stringer Primary School
Many of you will know that there is a shortage of primary school places in our local area and the data from the local authority is showing that despite many of our feeder schools expanding there will still not be enough places to meet the demand in the future. Sidney Stringer Academy is applying to the Government to establish and run a new Primary School for children in the local area.
Our aim is to create a two form entry primary school which would cater for 60 students in each year group from reception upwards. It would be a phased opening with reception class opening in 2015. The pupils that attend this school would then move to year 7 of the Academy when they reach secondary schools age. The school would have its own building and be run by primary teachers and experts but supported by the Academy who would be ultimately responsible for standards.
