Primary, infant and junior schools

Whitnash Primary School

Whitnash Primary School expanded to 2FE from September 2019. This has increased capacity by an additional 105 places across the school over 7 years and ensures the school is supported and grows alongside the proposed new schools in the Warwick and South Leamington primary planning areas. 

Heathcote Primary School

Heathcote Primary School opened from September 2017 as 1FE (210 places) and has proved popular with residents in the surrounding area. From September 2020, the school has been expanded to 2FE to ensure there are sufficient places to meet the expected need in the planning area in line with housing development.

High Meadow Infant School

From September 2019 High Meadow Infant School changed its name to High Meadow Community School and:

  • extended the age range of the school from five to seven years old to five to 11 years old
  • increased the capacity of the school from 90 pupils to 210 pupils.

The published admission number (PAN) remains the same at 30.

Expanding the school in this way results in the school providing full primary provision, with pupils benefiting from the continuity of teaching and learning.

The school has received recognition from OFSTED as being a good school.

Newdigate Primary School

From September 2020, Newdigate Primary School has been expanded to:

  • increase the capacity of the school from 315 pupils to 420 pupils (one and a half forms of entry to two forms of entry).
  • increase the published admission number (PAN) from 45 to 60, meaning the school will grow by 105 pupils across all year groups.

The increase in capacity at the school addresses the general rise in the population of primary aged pupils living in the planning area, which is the result of the higher birth rate in recent years and new housing being experienced by the county as a whole.

Burton Green C of E Academy

Burton Green C of E Academy is expanding to increase its capacity from 105 pupils to 140 pupils, increasing the published admission number (PAN) from 15 to 20, meaning the school will grow by 35 pupils across all year groups.

The increase in capacity at the school addresses the general rise in the population of primary aged pupils living in the planning area, partially due to new housing.

Completion of capital works is anticipated by September 2021.

Current Consultations

There are no proposed primary school expansions currently under consultation.
