New School Plan Update

On the 20th May 2019, the Children and Young People’s Committee of NCC approved the proposals of Governing Bodies of both schools and of the County Council to:

• Change the age range of Christ Church Infant School for it to become a primary school.

• Relocate Christ Church Primary School and to rebuild it on a site in the Middlebeck development in Newark.

• Reason: A single site school will be delivered by Middlebeck housing developers to meet the need for school places generated by a housing growth plan of up to 3,150 dwellings by 2034. Members have agreed to extend the age range of the current Christ Church Infant School to become a primary school and enlarge its premises by relocation to the Middlebeck site within the Newark growth point area.
