Newton Hill Community School

We propose that the school should expand from 1 September 2018. This means that the school would take an extra 15 children per year group.

Statutory Process Timeline:

Date Stage
31 October 2016 - 25 November 2016Consultation period
​24 January 2017​Cabinet
​3 February 2017 - 2 March 2017​Statutory notice period
​18 April 2017​Final decision to implement

During the Statutory Notice period a representation was received from a stakeholder.  A report including a summary of the representation and Wakefield Council’s response was considered by the Council’s Cabinet at a meeting on 18 April 2017. Cabinet agreed to the recommendation within the report and the expansion of the school will be implemented officially from 1 September 2018.

During the consultation stage of the process to expand the school a number of residents requested that an access be retained from Fourth Avenue to the existing public rights of way path behind the new school playing field and East Street. We are pleased to advise that it is the intention of the Council to submit an application to have the access recognised as a formal public right of way, and whilst the application is being processed an access will be left in place for use by the public.
