Bold Steps for Kent prioritises
Capital – The enlargement of the school requires the provision of 9 additional classrooms as well as ancillary facilities. A feasibility study was undertaken and a planning application has been submitted. The total cost is estimated to be in the region of £2,500,000. Appropriate funding has been identified as part of the Medium Term Capital Programme. The costs of the project are estimates and these may increase as the project is developed. If the cost of the project is greater than 10% the Cabinet Member will be required to take a further decision to allocate the additional funding.
Revenue – For a period of three academic years from September 2014, the school will receive protection for an additional 30 Reception Year pupils at the rate of £2,727 per pupil. For each additional classroom, resulting from the expansion of the school, the sum £6,000 will be allocated towards the classroom setup costs.
