Proposed expansion of The Bellbird Primary School, Sawston

Cambridgeshire County Council intends to make a prescribed alteration to The Bellbird Primary School, Link Road, Sawston, Cambridge, CB22 3GB from 1 September 2019. It proposes to increase the capacity of the school from 315 to 420. The current number of pupils registered at the school is 317. The current admission number for the school is 45 and the proposed admission number will be 60.

The proposal was determined by the Cambridgeshire County Council Children and Young People's Committee at its meeting on 13 November 2018. The Committee resolved by a majority to:

  • Approve the proposal to expand The Bellbird Primary School from 315 to 420 places;
  • For officers to seek approval from the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) to delay the implementation of the increase in the school's published admission number (PAN) from 45 to 60 until September 2020 in response to the concerns raised by The Icknield Primary School*

*The request to delay the implementation of the increase in The Bellbird's PAN was rejected by the OSA in January 2019.
