17 October: Tattenhall Park Primary Expansion Drop-In Meeting - Give Your Views

Home » News » Tattenhall Park Primary Expansion Drop In Meeting
Tattenhall Park Primary School

There will be a drop-in meeting for parents, carers, staff and governors to give their views on the proposed expansion of Tattenhall Park Primary School from 3-6pm on 17 October at the school.

Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council (the Council) has proposed expanding Tattenhall Park Primary School to help provide more places for local children. Tattenhall Park Primary School is experiencing a shortfall of primary places due to an increase in population mainly from new housing developments within the area. Further housing developments are anticipated to generate more local pupils requiring a primary school place. The Council has a duty to provide sufficient school places and is therefore proposing to provide additional school places by expanding Tattenhall Park Primary School from 1 to 1.5 forms of entry (from 30 to 45 places for each year group from Reception to Year 6).

The Governing Body of the school and the Council have agreed to carry out an informal public consultation on the proposal to permanently expand the school. The public consultation period runs until 23 October, after which a report summarising the responses received during the consultation period will be submitted to the Director of Education. The Director of Education will then decide whether to proceed with the expansion proposal and publish statutory proposals in the form of a public notice. The public notice would be published in a local newspaper and for a period of four weeks following the publication date any person can comment on the proposals. Having taken into account any responses, the Cabinet Member for Children and Young People will then take a final decision as to whether to proceed with the proposals.

There are a number of ways to share your views on this proposal:

  • At the drop-in for parents/carers, members of staff and governors being held at the school on Monday 17 October 3pm to 6pm, where there will be the opportunity to ask questions and complete a response form.
  • By sending the response form to
    Cheshire West and Chester Council,
    School Organisation Team (HQ Floor 1)
    4 Civic Way, Ellesmere Port, CH65 0BE.
  • Alternatively, you may hand your response form in at the school. All written responses need to be received by midnight on 23 October 2016.

It is with a heavy heart and with huge regret that Salon Vie Hairdressing announces the closure of the Tattenhall Salon.Implementing the 'Covid-19 protocols' during the current pandemic has simply proved too much of an overhead for the layout of the historic Olympus House building.This is due, in part, to the Salon being a shared building with communal areas.We will now only operate...
