Change of Age Range at Camp Hill Primary School

Closes 31 Jan 2022

Opened 4 Jan 2022

Overview

This consultation is being undertaken to advise you of proposals concerning Camp Hill Primary School, and to invite you to tell us what you think of the proposals. This is part of a statutory consultation process that Warwickshire County Council is managing in partnership with the school’s Governing Body.  The proposal is:

  • To change the age range at Camp Hill Primary School from 3 - 11 to 2 - 11 from March 2022. The published admission number (PAN) for the main school will not be affected by these proposals.

There will be no reduction in, nor material change to, the service provided by the school as a result of the age range change.

Why Change?

Camp Hill Primary School currently has an age range of 3 – 11, admitting 3 year olds into a Nursery class. The school also operates a Pre-School for 2-4 year olds.

The school wishes to change its age range to become a 2 – 11 primary school, in advance of converting to academy status in March 2022. The academy conversion process is such that, for the school to continue to support 2 and 3 year old children, this age range change should be made in advance of the conversion.

There will be no material alterations to the places offered for 2, 3 and 4 years olds at the school as a result of the age range change.

It is a statutory requirement that a public consultation is undertaken prior to changing the age range of a maintained school.

Why your views matter

Public consultation is in accordance with the statutory guidance produced by the Department for Education whereby ‘LAs can propose a change of age range of 1 year or more for community schools (including the adding or removal of nursery provision) by following the statutory process set out in the regulations’.

These proposals are made under The School Organisation (Prescribed Alterations to Maintained Schools (England) Regulations 2013.

The proposal is

  • To change the age range at Camp Hill Primary School from 3 - 11 to 2 - 11 from March 2022. The published admission number (PAN) for the main school will not be affected by these proposals.

There will be no reduction in, nor material change to, the service provided by the school as a result of the age range change.
