Surrey County Council (SCC) has been in discussions with the governors for some time and now needs to consult the local community about expanding the school to three form entry from September 2015.
The consultation will run from 20 May to 28 June 2013. A document will be available explaining why further school places are required in the local area and why Stamford Green has been chosen.
SCC will host open meetings at the school on Monday 3 June 2013 from 2.00 to 3.15 pm and 7.00 to 8.15 pm, to give everyone an opportunity to learn more about the proposal, ask questions and express their views.
Traffic and access problems are likely to be major concerns, alongside the possible impact on the ethos of the school.
Despite the construction and subsequent expansion of the nearby Southfield Park Primary School and the provision of additional places at 3 other local schools, for September 2013 a number of children living in the local area have been allocated to schools in Stoneleigh or Ashtead.
Update 11 June:
When the above was posted, it was not yet clear how SCC proposed to provide sufficient primary school places in September 2014. It has since been clarified that St Martins Infants and Juniors will be expanded from September 2014.
