Have your say

A Sheffield primary school will expand by a third next year after Sheffield Council agreed to increase the number of pupil places.

Greystones Primary School in Tullibardine Road, Greystones, is being expanded from 60 to 90 places from September 2015.

The school has been temporarily expanded in the past, but returned to 60 places for 2014.

The council has now approved proposals to make the increase permanent from next year.

A report said: “The population growth is concentrated in the Greystones Primary catchment area.

“A temporary arrangement has been in place with the school offering an extra 30 places as the local population has been growing.

“This trend is now clearly established and 90 places per year are needed permanently to offer children in the Greystones catchment area a place at their local school.”
