Issue details


The purpose of the report is to outline the consultation feedback arising from phase 1 of the pupil place planning review.


In March 2021, the Children Young People and Education Committee endorsed the Pupil Place Planning Strategy 2021 -2026. This Strategy set out a planned framework for the review of school places in both primary and secondary mainstream schools over the next 5 years.


At the March 2022 Children, Young People and Education committee, a consultation was approved in relation to recommendation 6, that the Diocese of Shrewsbury amalgamate St Peter’s Catholic Primary School and St Paul’s Catholic Primary School recommendation 7, to amalgamate Hillside Primary and Manor Primary schools.

As part of the committee report and consultation process it was made clear any alternative proposal arising from consultation would need to achieve a sustainable educational outcome within the local area.

Fundamental to the work had been adherence to the principles outlined. These are the drivers for change and are intrinsically aligned to the ‘Brighter Futures’ priority in the Wirral Plan 2021 - 2026. The work has already been captured as a strategic driver within the Plan and this report and recommendations form part of its delivery.
