Leeds City Council has agreed to spend £221,552 remodelling Bramley Primary School’s existing building in order to accommodate extra pupils.
The money will cater for an extra 20 pupils and are part of wider plans to expand Bramley Primary School in order to cater for a bulge in admissions as a result of rising birthrates, new housing developments and migration.
A council report says:
“As a result of a temporary increase in pupil numbers for the 2016/17 academic year throughout the city it is necessary to provide supplementary teaching accommodation to accommodate the identified ‘bulge’ cohorts.
“Bramley Primary School has been identified as a key site for addressing the need for pupil places in the Bramley
and Stanningley area space with the current school building.”
Work has already started on site, and is due to be completed by September.

In March, councillors sitting on the council’s powerful executive board progressed plans to expand the number of admission places at Bramley Primary School from 40 to 60 from September 2017.
