Croydon Council Revises School Place Demand Figures

Back in July 2014 the Croydon Council Cabinet was told by officers that they estimated a requirement within a range of 9-11 additional forms of entry with a potential for this to increase to 17 forms of entry for the education year 2015/16. As a result of further analysis the Cabinet meeting on 19 January is being told that what is now needed is 11 permanent forms of entry and an addition of 5 bulge classes. Discussion with ARK (Academy Trust) has led to the 3FE primary free school being deferred until 2016/17.
