Modification to Al-Noor Voluntary Aided Primary School Determination

Cabinet at its meeting of 8 September 2015 conditionally approved the proposal to establish a two form of entry voluntary aided Muslim primary school, provided that:

·         suitable planning permission is granted for the new building so that the school can open on 1st September 2017;

·         that suitable indemnity insurance is provided to the Council so that it is satisfied that the land is available for the establishment of a new voluntary aided Muslim primary school;

·         and a faith designation is given by the Secretary of State.

The proposers, Al-Noor Foundation Limited have requested a modification to Cabinet's determination of 8 September 2015. The proposers wish to open the new school in September 2018 due to changes in the building programme resulting in the accommodation not being ready for September 2017 and that they have yet to receive the faith designation.

Planning permission for the school was obtained in July 2016. The faith designation from the Secretary of State for Education is outstanding.

The council is seeking views on modifying the proposal for new voluntary aided Muslim School to open on 1st September 2018.
