Beecroft Primary School: £1 million expansion to be decided


Plans to spend more than £1 million expanding Beecroft Primary School in Kirkstall looks set to be rubberstamped by senior councillors next week.

Leeds City Council hopes to expand the Eden Way school to meet increasing demand for primary school places in the area.

A report to the council’s decision-making executive board next Wednesday recommends senior councillors approve plans to permanently expand Beecroft Primary by increasing its capacity from 210 pupils to 315. The proposals will increase the yearly admission number from 30 to 45 from September 2017.

During the recent four-week consultation period, the council received 86 responses with 78% in support of the proposal to increase the number of school places.

The scheme, which will cost up to £1 million, is subject to planning permission which will need to be granted before building work starts.
