More than 200 extra school places on offer in Slade Green application
PUBLISHED: 11:24 09 November 2012
An extra 210 school spaces could be available in Slade Green in 2014 subject to planning permission.
Plans have now been submitted to extend and refurbish Slade Green Infant and Junior Schools to include more classrooms, a new kitchen facility and external landscaping for additional play and sporting facilities.
They will be heard at a council planning meeting next month.
The work will be funded by an £8.5m investment by the council, which will also provide facilities for local clubs and organisations.
Consultations were heard over the summer on design proposals and for Slade Green Junior School to become part of Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, which also includes the Crayford Academy.
Plans would see the junior school become part of the federation in September 2013 and from the following summer children leaving year 6 will be able to transfer automatically to the Crayford Academy.
The applications are available to view by the general public and the last day for comments is November 28. Go to the www.bexley.gov.uk and visit the planning section, entering reference 12/01640/FUL for the infant school and 12/01641/FUL for the junior school.
