Consultation on the proposal to increase the admission number for Frenchay CE (Church of England) Primary School from September 2023

In consultation with the Governing Body, South Gloucestershire Council is proposing to increase the admission number for Frenchay CE Primary School. 

It is proposed to increase the admission number from 20 to 30 with effect from 1 September 2023.

The proposal is part of the capital investment programme to enlarge, rebuild and relocate Frenchay CE Primary School on a new site. The increased admission number is in line with the anticipated demand in the local area which can be met from the increased capacity of the new school building. It will apply to new applications received for first admission to the Reception class and across the existing year groups from September 2023.

No other alterations to the admission arrangements at the school are proposed and children currently attending the school will remain on roll.

Any comment on this proposal may be sent to South Gloucestershire Council by email to  or by post at the following address:

Charlotte Johnston

Admissions and Transport Manager

Education, Learning and Skills

Department for Children, Adults and Health

PO Box 1955, Bristol.  BS37 0DE

The closing date for responses is 28 January 2022. All responses to the consultation will be included in the Council’s annual report on admission arrangements and considered by the Council’s Cabinet in March 2022. Any changes will be published in the Admission to Schools guide in September 2022.


The proposal to increase the PAN to 30 is stage one of the enlargement of Frenchay CE Primary School, which was first consulted upon in August 2018. The prescribed alteration made to Frenchay CE Primary School refers to the enlargement proposal to provide up to 420 places on the new school site (140 existing places plus 280 additional).

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
