The Council is consulting on a number of proposals to expand primary schools so that we can provide more school places for children who need them.
We are consulting with a wide range of people including parents, carers and school leaders about proposals to expand a number of schools. We want to hear from the people who will be most affected by the proposals.
For a number of years, like many other councils, we experienced falling pupil numbers and were required to remove surplus places in a number of primary schools. Over the last few years however we have seen an increase in the number of births and we have already had to increase the number of places at some schools to meet need in the reception year.
We have worked closely with headteachers across Stockport to identify which schools are best placed to help us provide extra places.
The following schools are currently being proposed for expansion:
