Lewisham Council have arranged a consultation meeting on the Adamsrill Primary School decant proposal. The meeting will be held at Sydenham Community Library on Friday 31st May 2013 from 2pm – 5pm at the following address: 210 Sydenham Road Sydenham London SE26 5SE
The meeting is to discuss London Borough of Lewisham’s proposal for a temporary relocation of part of Adamsrill Primary school into Home Park.
Adamsrill Primary school is located in the Forest Hill & Sydenham Primary Place Planning Locality. There has been pressure on school places in the area since 2009 and this is forecast to continue / increase throughout this decade. The Mayor agreed in July 2012 that Adamsrill should be expanded permanently to 3 forms of entry.
In order to support the expansion, it will be necessary to demolish an old single storey extension and replace it with a two storey building linked to the original Edwardian school. The current extension buildings are shabby and need considerable maintenance. As the buildings are used by Key Stage 1, these children will need alternative accommodation during the building works for the 2013/14 academic year.
A number of alternative locations for the decant site have been investigated which include, Perryrise, Livesey Memorial Hall, Mornington Centre and Brent Knoll however all have proved to be non viable options.
Therefore Lewisham Council officers want to hear the views of local people on a proposal to use Home Park as a decant site for Adamsrill Primary School.
Lewisham Council look forward to your attendance.
