Proposal to change the age range and increase pupil numbers at Wey House School

Closed 25 May 2018

Opened 30 Apr 2018

Feedback Updated 4 Jun 2018

We Asked

We asked for your views on our proposal to change the age range and increase pupil numbers at Wey House School. These were due to be implemented in September 2018.

You Said

A total of two responses were received during the consultation period which closed at midday on Friday 25 May 2018, one disagreed and one did not know if they agreed or disagreed with the proposal.

During the consultation period a public meeting was held at the school on Monday 14 May 2018. No one attended the meeting.

A question raised in one of the responses related to increasing class size numbers and this having a detrimental impact on pupils. To confirm, as pupil numbers in the school grow, funding levels would grow also. There are no proposals to increase pupil numbers in individual classes. Additional classes will be created across the school. This will ensure that the pupil:staffing ratios are not impacted and that pupils will continue to receive the support they require in order to meet their identified needs.

We Did

As a result of the consultation process it has been decided to proceed with the proposals and the statutory notice will be issued on Monday 4 June 2018. This will give a further 4 week period for interested parties to make representations.

Following this period it is planned that a paper detailing the proposal and consultation outcomes will be presented to the Cabinet Member for Learning in July for a decision.

Overview

Surrey County Council in liaison with Wey House School, is proposing to extend the age range of Wey House School to incorporate some key stage 1 assessment places and expand pupil numbers in all year groups.

It is proposed that the number of places changes from the current total of 36 planned places in key stage 2 only, to 55 across the primary age range. These changes would come into effect from 1st September 2018.

Surrey County Council and Wey House School would like to seek your views on this proposal.  The consultation will open on 30th April 2018.

A public meeting is planned at Wey House School on Monday 14th May 2018 at 9:30am.

All are welcome to attend.
