Overview

Grendon Primary School is a community school and nursery for pupils aged 3 - 11 years. The school is located on Grendon Road, Birmingham B14 4RB (Highters Heath Ward and Selly Oak Constituency).

This proposal by Birmingham City Council, in collaboration with the school, is to consult by:

  • Altering the lower age limit from 3 years to age 4 years;
  • The age range would become 4 - 11 years;
  • The nursery provision would be removed with effect 1st September 2020.

This change is being proposed due to:

  • High amount of nursery provsion in the local area;
  • Low number of nursery pupils at the school in recent years;
  • Low pupil numbers affect the amount of funding;
  • Low funding is putting strain on the school budget.

Further details of the proposal are in the Full Proposal Document attached at the bottom of this consultation webpage.

Why we are consulting

There is a process that must be followed to change the age range of a school and remove nursery provision.

Part of the required process is formal public consultation; this will last for 4 weeks (known as the "representation period").

This formal consultation is open from 5th March 2020 until 2nd April 2020

We are keen to receive your comments on the proposal and you can comment using the online survey below until 2nd April 2020.

What happens next

At the end of this formal consultation (representation period) : The "Results" section and the "We asked, you said, we did" section of this web page will be updated with a summary of the responses received. The detailed comments will be anonymised and forwarded with a report to the decision makers at Birmingham City Council. The decision makers will make a decision on the proposal within two months from the end of the representation period (2nd June 2020).

1st June 2020: Birmingham City Council has approved the proposal to alter the lower age limit of Grendon Primary School to remove nursery provision for implementation from 1st September 2020.
