An application has been made to Lichfield District Council for the new school, football pitch and multi-use games area on land north of Burton Old Road in Streethay.

The new site – currently known as Streethay Primary School – is being proposed as part of the Roman Heights housing development currently being constructed.

The school would be built by Miller Homes through Section 106 funding with the plan to open it by September 2018. It has also been earmarked to become an academy.

A statement supporting the application said: “The brief is to provide nine primary school classrooms and supported learning areas.

“The amount of development proposed is based on one form entry and a total of 236 pupils with 26 nursery spaces. The proposal for the school has been designed to accommodate future expansion if required.”

Full details of the proposal can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

    So with other local schools facing a funding crisis, where is the money for another school coming from?

    To clarify the detail as we understand it, Section 106 funding initially for the build, then academy sponsorship is planned.
