Cabinet gives go ahead for more pupil places at Alexandra Primary School

Publication date: Wednesday 13 February 2013

A proposal to expand Alexandra Primary School from one to two forms of entry is today one step closer following agreement last night to appoint a formal contractor and start construction work.

The 'Reinstatement Project', approved by Haringey Council’s Cabinet, means the school will be able to meet demand better in the local area by increasing the number of pupils at the school from 210 to 420.

The project provides an opportunity for brand new building work at Alexandra Primary - including play, entrance and office areas - as well as making the most of existing space.

Commenting on the decision, Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Cllr Ann Waters, said:

"I’m committed to ensuring action is taken to create enough school places to meet local need. Together with the authority, school and the local community, we have been working for some time on the planning of this exciting project. I am delighted that we’ve now reached a stage where the real transformational work can begin – ready for many more children and families to reap the benefits."

Headteacher at Alexandra Primary, Jane Flynn, added:

"The design plans have been done well to enhance the provision and accommodation of our school, and we’re really looking forward to now seeing work starting."

Building and refurbishment work is expected to take place from April with completion of the project expected in February 2014.
