Statutory Notice - Proposal to close Stamford Hill Primary School with displaced pupils transferring to Tiverton Primary School (amalgamation)

Notice ID: WAT1467975

Notice effective from
20th November 2019 to 20th December 2019

Statutory Notice - Proposal to close Stamford Hill Primary School with displaced pupils transferring to Tiverton Primary School (amalgamation)
NOTICE is given in accordance with section 15(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 that Haringey Council, River Park House, 225 High road, London N22 8HQ intends to discontinue Stamford Hill Primary School, Berkeley Rd, London N15 6HD on 31 August 2020.
It is proposed to close Stamford Hill Primary School on 31 August 2020 with displaced pupils transferring to Tiverton Primary school (amalgamation). There is no intention to increase the number of places at Tiverton Primary School, as there are enough surplus places available within the school to accommodate all pupils. There is also a surplus of places at most other local schools for families who may prefer alternatives.
It is recognised that displaced pupils will need to make new journeys to school and some pupils may have further to travel. However, analysis on existing pupil addresses shows that 30% of pupils will have a shorter journey to Tiverton Primary school. Moreover, no existing pupil at Stamford Hill Primary school will have to travel more than 160 metres further to their new school since Tiverton Primary is immediately adjacent to Stamford Hill Primary.
Full consultation has been undertaken over a period of 6 months (the most recent running from 9 September and 21 October 2019), including meetings with staff, governors, and parents along with other interested parties. A four-week period of representation will now commence, which is the final opportunity for people and organisations to express their views about the proposal.
This Notice is an extract from the complete proposal. Copies of the complete proposal can be obtained from the Council's website
