The object of this report was to evaluate and prompt discussion on the current and optimal size and distribution of the existing ‘Town Primary School Estate’.
The review considered the location, scale and catchment area of the existing 8 primary schools that form part of the ‘Town Basin’ in both the current residential configuration of St. Helier and St. Saviour and the future when the current (notable) developments have been completed.
The report enabled Officers from the Children, Young People, Education and Skills Department (CYPES) to put together a high level requirements statement for the construction of new town primary schools.
The opportunity to build state of the art new schools in the heart of St. Helier is unique. CYPES Officers are keen to ensure a new school not only meets the demographic needs for the locality but also enables educational, inclusion and community opportunities to benefit the whole of St Helier and the Island.
