Proposal to alter the lower age limit of Bamford Primary School from 4 years to 3 years

Status: Results available

Opens: 10 May 2018 - Closes: 15 June 2018

What this consultation is about

Bamford Primary School is an established, successful community primary school with an age range of 4-11. The current provision within school enables children to attend an Early Years Foundation Stage 2 (Reception Class) setting followed by Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The school does not currently provide any nursery or pre-school provision. The school lies within the Peak District National Park.

We would like your views on the proposal to change the lower age limit of the school from 4 years to 3 years, by extending the provision to include both Foundation Stage 1 and Foundation Stage 2 children (from the age of 3 instead of 4). The school already has adequate staffing and premises to make this alteration without significant changes being required and with minimal disruption to the existing provision.

This consultation is now closed. A report was presented to a meeting of the Young people cabinet member portfolio 7 August 2018, agenda item 5.
