Introductory Letter from Main Contractor - 15th July 2021

Online Consultation - 22nd June 2021

Please note that due to the delay in easing of lockdown restrictions, we are no longer able to hold the consultation at School on 22nd June. The attached letter was sent to parents/carers and local residents advising that the consultation would now be held virtually, and contained details of how information would be made available and how you can respond.


The plans and consultation questionnaire shown below can also be found online at Trafford's Citizen Space portal:


The deadline for submitting feedback on the proposals is 6th July 2021.


Firs Primary School Proposed Expansion

Trafford have proposed that Firs Primary School be expanded from its current 2-form entry admission format (60 children per year) to become a 3-form entry admission (90 children per year) from September 2022. Our School would have a 3-form entry intake for Year 1 in September 2021 due to the School already accommodating up to 10 extra children in the current 2020/21 Reception intake. Please read the below letter for more initial information.
