During October 2011, North Lincolnshire Council successfully applied to the Department for Education (DfE) for funding to create a new-build primary school to replace Grange Lane Infant School and Grange Lane Junior School. In view of this, the LA sought the views of key stakeholders to determine their level of support to create a single primary school. A thorough consultation was undertaken from 18 June 2012 to 10 August 2012 which identified that 93% of the respondents agreed with the amalgamation proposals.
Following the consultation a formal public notice was published that confirmed the exact details of the proposal and approval to establish a new community primary school was issued by the School Adjudicator on 19th June 2013.
Resolved – That the position to date regarding the amalgamation of Grange Lane Infant and Grange Lane Junior School be noted.
