Consultation about proposed temporary expansion of Manor School to include the Harmony Centre
Local demand for special school places is increasing. Despite adding additional places at Manor, Woodfield and The Village in recent years, as well as a new special school (The Avenue) opening, Brent Council needs more places for local children. It has asked Manor School to expand temporarily (until summer 2027) to be able to admit 24 more pupils. Manor School is a very successful and popular school, but it cannot accommodate more pupils on the Chamberlayne Road site. So the proposal is that the extra places would be provided at the Harmony Centre, which was previously a children’s centre. It is located 2.3 miles from Chamberlayne Road. We hope that children would be able to start at the Harmony Centre in January 2021 or shortly afterwards.
We are now consulting about this proposed temporary expansion. Trustees will consider all responses, and if they wish to proceed we have to get permission from the Department of Education.
The consultation document is available here. To share your thoughts please complete the short SurveyMonkey questionnaire that is available here. Staff and parents are being invited to meetings to discuss the proposal further.
The consultation runs until midday on Tuesday 13th October 2020 – please have your say before then.
