Consultation on the proposal to lower the age range of Stamford Green Primary School

Closes 19 Apr 2021

Opened 22 Feb 2021


Surrey County Council and the Governing Body of Stamford Green Primary School are proposing to lower the age range of Stamford Green Primary School, Ewell from 4 to 11 years to 2 to 11 years

This would mean that the current nursery provision for 2 – 4 year olds led by the Governing Body would become a maintained nursery managed by the school, under the same Ofsted registration as the school.


Why we are consulting

Surrey County Council and Stamford Green Primary School propose to change the current section 27 nursery provision to become a nursery that is under the same registration as the school and continues to provide a secure, stimulating, quality nursery provision for children in the local area. The nursery is currently meeting a need identified through the Surrey County Council Childcare Sufficiency assessment and will continue to do so under this proposal.

The nursery at Stamford Green Primary school was initially set up under section 27 of the Education Act 2002 which allows schools to open and establish a nursery as a separate community provision. As the nursery is now an integral part of the community, by lowering the school age the nursery children become pupils of the school and supports more efficient governance and operational functions. This continues to support the government’s policy on providing 15 and 30 hours Funded Early Education for 2, 3 and 4 year olds in schools.
