Recent 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 and at the school in question.

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. A 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.

If a proposal is not approved we would find a way of delivering the required school places in a different way. This might be through amending the initial proposal slightly, producing a completely new proposal (with public consultation) or making temporary arrangements (known as bulge cohorts) in local schools.​ ​

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

New update – At its meeting on 17 September the 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 the 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 2018 the council’s Executive Board approved the recommendation to publish a Statutory Notice in relation to the proposal to expand the school.

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