“This authority is committed to building new schools, or expanding existing ones where appropriate, to ensure that all Staffordshire’s children have access to a good education in first class local facilities.
This £4 million proposal to repurpose the Kingston Centre meets the anticipated future need in this part of Stafford in a sustainable way, as the site is within walking distance of the housing developments it will serve.
Having engaged with the school community and residents in the area, the next step is to formally publish the proposal for the relocation and expansion of St Leonard’s Primary School.”
Cllr Jonathan Price, Cabinet Member for Education (and SEND)
