Live Blog: Decision day for Oldfield School move plans

A decision is set to be made tonight over controversial plans to move Oldfield Primary School to a new site off Bray Road.

3:07pm: This week Oldfield Primary School headteacher Richard Jarrett told the Advertiser every available space at the Chiltern Road school is used to support teaching and learning.

He added: "If we do not move we will have 270 children until 2018 reverting back to 210 in September 2020"


 

15:01: The future of Oldfield Primary School will be decided at a public meeting tonight.

The Royal Borough wants to push through a controversial £9m plan that would see the school move to a greenbelt site in Bray Road.

The decision was set to be made in September. But councillors voted to defer the plans following a heated four hour debate over concerns about the school being built on greenbelt and on the flood plain.

Fears were also raised about the impact an increase in traffic caused by the new 420- place schoo, would have on the surrounding area.
