This gives the total number of 4 to 6 year olds in state school provided places of 3650 in the Spring of 2014, numbers do not seem to be easily accessible for 2015. For 2016 there will be a total of 1335 places available. At the end of the last academic year 1222 children "moved up" to junior schools.

This leaves room for an expansion in population but if we project this into the future, when and where will the places be made available for the increased numbers that will be created by the great development phase that we are about to undertake until the new schools are actually up and running as they will certainly not be built before the houses are occupied?

The greatest interim effect of Welborne will be felt by Orchard Lea, Uplands, Harrison and St Columba's. It will just add more traffic queues to the North Hill, Kiln Road and Highlands Road rat run.

If Newlands goes ahead then it would seem that Ranvilles would probably be the closest but Crofton schools would be the easiest to reach as they are likely to be against the prevailing traffic flow, but that depends on how many jobs can be created at Daedalus. Possibly gridlock will occur during term time but then we are already approaching that situation.

With catchment areas as large as these and only six secondary schools for an estimated total secondary school population of 11,000, where will the children of the additional 6,000 houses in Welborne, 3,500 in North Whiteley (not in fact part of Fareham Borough Council), 1,500 in Newlands and all of the other additional houses be educated.

The plan for the Welborne Secondary School is for it not to be even started before the first 5,000 houses have been completed and until it is completed how will the road structure cope with the additional school runs through an already highly congested part of the town and how will our existing schools manage to accomodate and educate the additional students?

To date there has been no statement offered that addresses this potential major problem.

Headteachers from Fareham meet MPs over school funding concerns

24-03-2017

Two paragraphs in the same article - it just shows how beautifully numbers can be spun.

"Under the DFE’s proposed new funding formula, schools across the Fareham borough will see a 21% increase in net funding, or equivalent to £952,000.

However, across the borough, around 10 of Fareham’s 21 schools will lose out on funding cuts between £7,000 and £96,000 per annum."


Daily Echo article Link to the Daily Echo article"

So three schools will see a nice increase in Government funding while ten will lose out, not sure about the eight. It doesn't look good for the children that will be housed in the additional 12,000 houses planned for Fareham. I wonder if they are starting to remove funding so that the new schools in Welborne can have some of the cake.
