Statutory notices

Legislation states that a statutory notice must be published when a local authority proposes to make significant changes to a school.

You can find more guidance on this on GOV.UK - School organisation: local-authority-maintained schools.

Any statutory notices published by the local authority relating to proposals to make significant changes to a school will be detailed on this page.

Any comments or queries made during any of the consultation meetings regarding proposals to make changes to schools will be summarised in a report to the Executive Board. A copy of the reports can be found in our meetings archive.

Proposal to increase primary school places at Moor Allerton Hall Primary School

Following the consultation to expand Moor Allerton Hall Primary School, at its meeting on 27 June Leeds City Council’s Executive Board approved the recommendation to publish a Statutory Notice in relation to the proposal to expand the school.

A Statutory Notice will be published in the Yorkshire Evening Post on Monday 2 July 2018. This is a prescribed, legal process as set out in the Department for Education’s statutory guidance which will mark the start of a 4 week formal consultation period, also known as a ‘representation period’.

The formal consultation period will run from 2 July 2018 to 4pm on 30 July 2018. During this period anyone can comment on or object to the proposal to expand the school.

The Full Proposal (PDF 33KB) and the Statutory Notice (PDF 58KB) are available to read online.

If anyone wishes to comment on or object to the proposal they can do this by using the contact details on this page. Comments or objections should reach the Sufficiency and Participation Team by 4pm on 30 July 2018 in order to be counted.

This decision must be made within two months of the end of the statutory notice. If the Executive Board do not make a decision the schools adjudicator will step in and make a decision for them. <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span></div>
