Keynsham primary school in line for expansion to meet rising demand
A PRIMARY school in Keynsham is among six schools in Bath and North East Somerset which could be expanded to meet rising demand.
B&NES Council's cabinet will meet on February 13 to discuss plans to create extra pupil places at Castle Primary, along with places at Paulton Infant, Paulton Junior, Peasedown St John Primary, and Bathampton Primary and Weston All Saints C of E Primary in Bath.
The council says it wants to help families secure a place for their children at a local school, making it possible for them to walk or cycle to the classroom.
Dine Romero, councillor responsible for schools, said: "The council is committed to ensuring it provides sufficient school places in the right area to meet demand and increase parental choice.

"Our projections of future pupil numbers based on population growth and pupils coming from new housing developments and parental preference indicate a future shortfall of primary school places in these areas of the district and at these schools if action is not taken to add more places.
"The schools chosen represent the most appropriate options for expansion as they have good educational standards and are popular with parents. They are also located in the areas of projected future demand from new housing and/ or underlying population growth and the school sites are of a sufficient size to accommodate the expansion."
