Peterborough Catholic primary consultation is launched

Today (September 9) the Diocese of East Anglia has launched a six-week consultation on its proposal to build a new Catholic primary school at the Hampton East development in Peterborough.

The diocese has published a consultation document that provides more details about the proposed school, including how it will be run, and everyone is invited to complete the consultation response form which needs to be returned by Sunday, 20th October 2019. Consultation drop-in sessions have also been organised at:

  • St Thomas More Catholic Primary School on Wednesday, 18th September at 7pm
  • Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School on Tuesday, 1st October at 3.30pm
  • Hampton Vale Community Centre on Monday, 7th October at 7pm

Helen Bates, Assistant Director for Schools, explains: “It is really important that as many people as possible respond to this consultation by completing the response form. The final decision as to whether the new Catholic primary school can go ahead will be made by Peterborough City Council, and the responses we get to our consultation will be important for the City Council in helping to determine how much support there is for the new school.”

The consultation document and response form, together with some FAQs can be found on the Diocese’s website at Paper copies can be obtained by either emailing or writing to Diocesan Schools’ Office, 21 Upgate, Poringland, Norwich, NR14 7SH.

All response forms must be returned by Sunday, 20th October 2019.
