Councillors will decide on Tuesday whether to go ahead with a £4 million plan to expand primary schools in Newmarket, Exning, Mildenhall and Red Lodge.
The proposed expansions are needed to provide 95 additional reception places from September next year with the possibility of additional growth at the schools, if necessary to meet future demand.
The schools that will be expanded, if Suffolk County Council’s cabinet agrees are Houldsworth Valley in Newmarket; Great Heath in Mild-enhall,Exning Primary School and St Christopher’s in Red Lodge together with three other schools across the county.
Newmarket county councillor, Lisa Chambers, cabinet member for education, skills and young people, said: “We know that there is going to be an increased demand for primary school places here in Suffolk, as is the case across the country.
“We are however prepared for this increase and are putting these proposed expansions in place to meet this demand.
“We are already beginning our plans to expand school places in the Ipswich area and the proposals in next week’s cabinet paper offer solutions to the increase in demand in the west of the county.
“We have worked closely with the schools, governing bodies and the local communities to develop these proposals and I am confident that the proposals set out offer sensible and informed solutions to meeting the demand for primary school places.”
