The School Organisation Team is committed to ensuring that the population of Leeds is provided with the right number of school places, in the right location, and at the right time. As a major part of our duties, the team carries out a number of area-based reviews each year. Each review contains a detailed analysis of the area, considering the current and future demographics, new housing developments, the capacity of the schools, the condition and flexibility of school buildings, along with a large amount of other relevant data.
Most of these reviews are “desk-based” and conducted without any major change to the schools in an area. Outcomes might be: working with a school to increase or reduce their capacity and/or their admission limit; or to continue to monitor the situation. However, in a number of cases, it becomes apparent that a more formal review is required, involving consultation with colleagues, schools, pupils, parents and carers, councillors and the general public.
We are also heavily involved with securing funding for refurbishing or rebuilding schools. This might be through Building Schools for the Future or the Government's Academy Programme.
Below are links to documentation relating to some of the secondary reviews and consultations that the School Organisation Team are or have been involved with. Please note that information on current consultation on proposals involving Allerton Grange School, Carr Manor High School and Roundhay School Technology and Language College can be found on the the Primary Reviews and Consultation page.
