Have your say on plans to expand Kidlington school

Views are being sought on plans to expand a Kidlington primary school to provide more places for local children.

The proposal, to increase Edward Feild School’s admission number from 45 to 60 children, would enable the school to accommodate two classes of 30 for each year group that starts at the school from September 2018.

The school, which was recently rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, has welcomed additional pupils into Reception classes since 2014 in response to growing demand for school places in the Kidlington area. The council is now working with the school’s leadership on a proposal to increase admissions to 60 on a permanent basis,

Total numbers at the school would grow gradually each year as children are admitted into the Reception year, eventually reaching a maximum total of 420 pupils across all year groups.
