New Free School proposed in Chadderton, Oldham
The need for a new primary school for children with SEND has been identified by Oldham Council and the Department for Education.
Kingfisher Learning Trust has been approved as a sponsor of this new school by the Secretary of State for Education.
Halcyon Way School will be a 140 place school for primary aged children and is being developed on a site on Gordon Street, Chadderton – on land to the rear of the current Kingfisher Special School.
Admissions to the school will be for those pupils having an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) issued by the Local Authority.
The proposed opening date for Halcyon Way will be January 2022.
Kingfisher Learning Trust is an education charity and not-for-profit Trust with a proven track record for raising standards and developing outstanding learning for pupils in Oldham.
The curriculum at Halcyon Way will be individualised and meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. It will be thematic in its approach with a focus on purposeful learning.
This consultation window opened on 1st February 2021 and will close on Friday 5th March 2021 and will take place on-line.
