Singlegate Primary School
Consultation on proposed permanent expansion of the school from 1FE to 2FE (30 to 60 pupil places per year), and shared landscaped area for Colliers Wood Recreation Ground

What is proposed?
The London Borough of Merton has a legal obligation to provide school places for all the children needing eduation. The demand for places in the borough is increasing substantially and wherever possible we wish to meet that need through expanding ou best schools and the ones which parents most wish to access.
Singlegate Primary School is currently a oneform entry (1FE) school, admitting up to 30 pupils in one class per year, providing education for 210 pupils across the School e cludingthe nursery. Following a request from the Council, the School has taken an extra class in reception year in September 2011 and will do so again in September 2012 through a two classroom extension that could later convert into an additional hall for the school.
The Council wishes to permanently expand the school from September 2013 to be a twoform entry (2FE) school, admitting up to 60 pupils per year in two classes. This will mean it would eventually have up to 420 pupils on roll excluding the nursery, but the expansion of the places would be gradual until reaching all yeagroups in 2017/18.
To enable the expansion, the school needs appropriate play facilities. It is therefore proposed that a small area of the recreation ground adjacent to the school is enhanced to provide creative children’s play facilities that will be available for the exclusive use of the school during school hours, but will be fully open for the benefit of the general community for all other hours that the recreation ground is open. A drawing of the area showing the location of the proposed additional buildings on the Singlegate School site, and landscaping proposals for the recreation ground is available on onsultations.hmand will be on display on a recreation ground noticeboard.
Wh isthe Council poposing a change?
There is a significant increase in demand for school places in Merton, with more children reaching school age, fuelled by a birth rate that has risen by 39% in the last eight years. Our population forecasts indicate that much of this rise will be sustained.
The proposed expansion of Singlegate Primary School is part of an overall programme of school expansion in Merton. From 2008 to 2011 nineteen schools, including Singlegate, have provided additional reception classes to ensure sufficient places are provided. In the autumn of 2010, Merton also consulted on the school expansions required in reception year fo2011/12 and 2012/13, including Singlegate Primary School. The consultation and the decision document from the Council’s Cabinet is available on the Council’s website m or can be requested from the address stated on theesponse form.
Singlegate Primary is a popular and successful school. In its most recent Ofsted inspection, it was judged to be “outstanding”. The school was still heavily subscribed even when providing the additional 30 places in reception year for September 2011, and only able to provide places to some 535 metres under the distance criteria. Without these additional places the distance would have been much less, and if this expansion does not take place, would be much less in the future. With demand for places forecast to further increase over the next few years the expansion of the school is considered
essential for the council to provide sufficient local school places.
The changes to the recreation ground, as well as benefiting the school, will provide improved play facilities for children at the time they are most needed i.e. outside school hours.
