The Enfield Learning Trust have taken the decision to consult on the following two issues:
- A reduction in the planned admission number at Chesterfield Primary School from 120 to 90 from September 2018. This reflects the reduction in under 4's in the north east of Enfield.
- The separation of Bowes Edmonton into a stand alone school. There are two options - to become a 2 form entry primary school, or to become 1 form entry primary school with a special primary school for children with Social Emotional and Mental Health. In the case of the latter option, they would be stand alone schools but based on the same site.
The consultation period is now open.
