Forward Plan Ref: 2019/105

Report by Corporate Director for Children’s Services (CMDECS4).


The report seeks approval to formally adopt the updated Pupil Place Plan for Oxfordshire, covering the period from 2019/20 to 2023/24.


The Pupil Place Plan includes present and predicted future pupil numbers on roll, together with information about birth rates, school capacity, and new housing. The Plan sets out proposed changes in the number of school places available over the next year and it suggests where other changes may be necessary in the future. The plan also sets out our policies on school organisation and the statutory framework for making changes such as opening, closing or enlarging schools. The Plan does not itself propose service changes, but collates proposals which have been made, or are expected.


The Pupil Place Plan is updated annually, based on revised data and comments from schools.


The Cabinet Member is RECOMMENDED to approve the Oxfordshire 2019-2023 Pupil Place Plan.
