Public consultation: Proposal to relocate and expand Harlowbury Primary School, Harlow
A school site has been reserved on the Gilden Way housing development, upon which Essex County Council can deliver the additional primary school places that its forecasts show will be needed to address a new and sustained demand from within that area of Harlow. Working in partnership with the Templefields Multi Academy Trust and the senior leadership team of Harlowbury Primary School, the Council is now consulting on its preferred option to achieve that outcome, which would be:
• to relocate the Academy to new buildings on the reserved site (which sits within 300m of its current one); and
• commence its phased expansion from that date, by admitting 30 additional Reception children per year until it reaches the new capacity of 420 places in 2027.
