Cabinet members asked to approve extra 90 primary school places in Bournemouth to meet demand

First published in News

CABINET members in Bournemouth are being asked to approve an extra 90 primary school places from next year.

Increased demand means Elm Academy in Kinson and Jewell Academy in Townsend will be asked to add another class each with the final 30 children to be accommodate either at Kinson primary or the new Avonwood Primary in Boscombe East.

The council is also looking at ways to provide more secondary school places from 2018.

Councillors will consider the proposals for “the continued exceptionally high number of children expected to start school for the first time” at a meeting tomorrow.

The latest forecasts available indicate the demand for primary school places will not continue to rise as steeply as in recent years but will remain at a high level.

Fascinating ".......and Jewell Academy in Townsend will be asked to add another class each" perhaps the cabinet members should then also be asked why they controversially closed this same school (by another name) only a very few years ago because they assured us all there would be a dramatic fall in demand for places.

Do they actually have the faintest idea what they are doing?

In a word "No"

Beesley is far more focused on his town centre vision, he'd rather spend £millions on building new multi-story car parks, blocks of flats and on his compulsory purchases of Exeter Road car park than on core public services like education.
