Interested parents gathered at Oldfield Primary School last night to learn more about the latest plans to move the school to a new site in Bray Road.
Education planning officer Ben Wright outlined the Royal Borough's timeframe for building the new school which is scheduled to open in September 2014.
Leadbitter Group has also been signed up as the contractor for the project.
About 80 people attended the meeting in Chiltern Road, which gave them the opportunity to voice concerns and ask questions about the move.
Headteacher Richard Jarrett said: "On the whole the parents are very supportive of the move to Bray Road. They all support the school."
Questions were also asked about the Bray Road Action Group, which plans to take the council's decision to allow the move to a judicial review.
But Cllr Phil Bicknell, cabinet member for children's services, said whoever wanted to put in a judicial review would have to do so soon to be taken seriously by the courts.
