Mayfield Primary Academy
Operating as a 315 place 1.5-form entry school complete with a 26 place nursery, the existing buildings stood as a time-served ‘CLASP’ system which were in a poor state of repair, and inefficiently configured. The existing school buildings were located to the centre of the site which limited the capacity for external play and team sports.
The strategic vision for the new facility, delivered through the Education Funding Agency’s (EFA) Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), was to increase the pupil intake to 420 as a 2-form entry with 30 nursery places. The scheme required the new school to stay on the site of the existing facility, with the existing pupils decanting into temporary facilities.Find out more
