Next steps for Braywick Court School

Posted on January 13, 2016 by Team Media

Braywick Court School is consulting on plans to redevelop their current school buildings and are inviting local people to comment on revised plans to expand Braywick Court on the former Winbury School site.  The revised proposals address the feedback received during consultation on the previously withdrawn application.

The plans are for a purpose built, one-form, non-selective primary school serving the local community that allow for the retention of the Braywick Nature Centre in its current building and do not build on the Nature Reserve. The revised proposals also include a comprehensive travel assessment in order to build a robust travel plan for the school.

Proposals for the redevelopment of the site include:

  • A one form, non-selective primary school serving the local community.
  • Purpose built school of high quality design in keeping with the surrounding environment of Braywick Nature Reserve and neighbouring historic buildings.
  • Braywick Court provides a small, safe, nurturing school which gives their pupils the opportunity to thrive and develop with self-esteem and confidence.
  • A comprehensive travel plan and home-school agreement to address car demand and encourage walking scooting and cycling.
  • Allows for the retention of the Braywick Nature Centre in its current building.
  • New jobs for local people.
  • Up to 210 primary school places.

Simon Ward, Chairman of the Bellevue Place Education Trust, said:

“We are delighted to share our revised proposals with the local community and believe we have addressed feedback received during the previous consultation.  Our plans will provide much needed school places for the local community, as well as making better use of the site.  We hope that as many people as possible will come along to our public exhibition.”

Thousands of newsletters have been distributed to local residents informing them about the plans and asking them to comment.
