Pupil Place Planning


St Helens Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places. The Council’s latest pupil place projections show there is a growing demand for primary school places in the Eccleston and Windle area with a predicted shortfall from September 2019 onwards. As a result, the Council is proposing to permanently expand Bleak Hill Primary School from two forms of entry (60 pupils admitted each year) to three forms of entry (90 pupils admitted each year).

The expansion is proposed to commence in September 2019 with 75 pupils to be admitted into Reception Year, then 90 pupils each Reception Year from September 2020 onwards. The Council is currently consulting on its proposal and would like to provide parents and local residents with an opportunity to discuss this with officers at the following drop-in events:

Drop-in 1: Monday 15 October 2018. Time: 3.30pm – 6.30pm

Drop-in 2: Wednesday 17 October 2018. Time: 6.00pm – 8.00pm

Location: Bleak Hill Primary School – please come to main reception.

If you are unable to attend any of the above events but want to learn more, you can view the full proposal along with other related documents below. If you have any comments, please respond to the officer named in the proposal by 12 November 2018.
