Name and contact details of the Local Authority or governing body publishing the proposal:
North Yorkshire County Council, County Hall, Northallerton, North Yorkshire, DL7 8AE
Name, address and category of the school proposed for alteration:
Stillington Community Primary School, Main Street, Stillington, York, YO611LA
Proposed Implementation date:
23rd February 2021
Description of alteration and evidence of demand
To lower the age range of Stillington Community Primary School to provide places for 3 and 4 year olds. There is no nursery provision within the village and Governors have been aware for some time that some of their children do not access nursery education.
Objectives educational standards and parental choice
To provide Early Years provision for parents, pupils and the local community.
Stillington CP School is proposing to offer up to 10 full time (or equivalent part-time) nursery-aged places. This would be arranged flexibly depending upon the needs of the family and current legislation, including provision over lunchtime although there will be an additional charge if a school dinner is provided.
Effect on other schools, academies and educational institutions within the area:
There would be no effect on surrounding schools and local providers of Early Years education were notified as part of the non-statutory pre-consultation and will again have a chance to comment as part of the statutory representation period.
The revenue cost will be met from a combination of means based funding and parental subscription.
There are no capital implications as a result of this proposal as the school would continue to run their education provision across the existing site and buildings.
There are no transport costs related to this proposal.
Following a formal decision to approve the lowering of age range, Stillington Community Primary School will work to have the new arrangements in place for 23 February 2021.
