Issue details

Proposed Expansion of Rose Street (Community Primary) School

It is proposed to enlarge Rose Street School by 210 places taking the PAN to 60 (2FE) for the September 2015 intake and eventually a total capacity of 420 places.


a.        Capital – The enlargement of the school requires the provision of 7 additional classrooms, as well as ancillary facilities.  A feasibility study was commissioned. The total cost is estimated to be in the region of £2,690,765.15.  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 variation exceeds 10% the Cabinet Member will be required to take a further decision to allocate the additional funding.

b.        Revenue – For a period of three academic years from September 2015, 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 of £6,000 will allocated towards the classroom setup costs.

c.        Human – Rose Street School will appoint additional teachers, as the school size increases and the need arises.
