Proposal to expand Trinity Road Primary School from September 2022

Closed 19 Apr 2021

Opened 8 Mar 2021


Working in partnership with the senior leadership team of Trinity Road Primary School in Chelmsford, Essex County Council is exploring the possibility of expanding the school (on a phased basis) to 420 places from September 2022, so that it may admit cohorts of 60 children into its Reception Year going forward from that date.  Appropriate permanent accommodation would be delivered on the school site to allow that to happen.

Why your views matter

All parties agree that the principle of expanding Trinity Road Primary School should be explored with the local community, as it enhances the educational offer that could be made to local parents. The school would be able to organise without the need for mixed age classes and it would enjoy an improved and modern learning environment for the pupils to learn and develop, within comfortable, purpose-built surroundings.  


What happens next

Once the consulation closes, all responses to it will be considered.  The decision maker will then reach a view on whether or not to take the next steps of the process forward.
