Schools organisation plan

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, a summary version of the Schools Organisation Plan has been produced and includes data for the 2019/20 academic year and is accurate as at 1 September 2020.

The Summary Childcare Sufficiency Assessment and Schools Organisation Plan 2020 is a nationally recognised document produced annually to refresh the data held. It provides a consistent review of emerging early year and school place pressures in the Wakefield district and is seen as good practice.

Wakefield Council has a statutory duty to ensure there are enough school places available across the Wakefield district. The Schools Organisation Plan is reviewed annually and includes present and predicted future pupil numbers at each school across the Wakefield district, together with information about birth rates and school capacity. The Schools Organisation Plan considers the impact of recent legislation, funding and existing plans and policies as well as new housing developments in order that the Local Authority can meet its statutory duties to provide school places. The Schools Organisation Plan analyses changes in the number of school places available over the last year and suggests where other changes may be necessary in the future.

It is important to note that the publication of a full version of The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment and Schools Organisation Plan will recommence for 2021.
