New nursery classes
Plans to open new nursery classes at Charlton-on-Otmoor Primary School and Burford Primary School have taken a step forward.
The necessary legal notices will now be published so that the schools can admit children from the age of three from September 2007 and there will be a 'formal' consultation period.
Burford Primary School plans to create two new outdoor learning areas and redevelop its 'Foundation Stage' classroom for the youngest children.
Both schools have already carried out informal consultations with the local community about the plans.
The county council's Cabinet Member for School Improvement, Councillor Michael Waine, said: "The new nursery classes would provide a positive environment where children have the freedom to play and learn.
"We have listened carefully to the issues raised by Burford Pre-School about the possible impact of a new nursery class on their provision.
"Having considered all the detail, there is much to be said for the new nursery class offering greater parental choice andincreased childcare options for people living in Burford and the surrounding area."
