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

Proposal to expand Benton Park Secondary School from September 2021
The statutory notice period relating to a proposal to permanently expand Benton Park School has now ended. The Executive Board is expected to make a final decision on the proposal and following that decision, there will be a further update.
Proposal to increase primary school places at Moor Allerton Hall Primary School
New update – At its meeting on 17 September Leeds City Council’s Executive Board approved the recommendation to permanently expand Moor Allerton Hall Primary School from 2 forms of entry (60 places) to 3 forms of entry (90 places) from September 2019.
This decision was ‘called-in’ for review and Leeds City Council’s Scrutiny Board met on 10 October to consider the reasons for ‘call-in’. The outcome of the Scrutiny Board meeting was that the Executive Board’s decision was released for implementation meaning that the proposals can now go ahead.
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.
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.
