The County Council is the Strategic Commissioner of Education Provision in Kent and has a duty to ensure that sufficient school places are available to meet demand. The Commissioning Plan for Education Provision in Kent sets out Kent’s commissioning intentions and is revised annually. The 2016-20 edition was approved by full Cabinet in March 2016. The Plan forecasts an increase in the demand for primary school places across Swale district from September 2018 and specifically in the Sittingbourne North planning area.
The local authority is therefore looking to commission additional school places at Regis Manor School. The governing body and Swale Academies Trust have agreed to hold a public consultation on a proposal to permanently expand the school from 2 form entry (2FE) to 3 form entry (3FE).
The consultation period will take place from 23 January to 6 March 2017. Following the consultation, the full governing body will consider all views expressed and then make a decision on how to proceed.
Have your say
If you wish to comment on this proposal, please return a response form by midday on Monday 6 March either by handing it in at the school office or emailing your views to email@example.com.
An information drop-in session will be held at the school on Thursday 23 February at 5pm.
This consultation has now closed.
