Chestnut Park Opening Delayed Until 2021

The opening of Chestnut Park has been delayed until September 2021 following a decision by North Somerset Council and the Department for Education.  North Somerset Council have issued the following press release.

Clevedon Learning Trust and North Somerset Council are committed to delivering Chestnut Park Primary School in Yatton.  Regrettably, due to delays in starting the school buildings, the construction project for the school site is not as developed as we would have hoped.  We think that this may have affected the certainty sought when parents applied for new school places from September 2020.

As a result of the above the Council has asked for and received agreement from the Department for Education to delay the opening of Chestnut Park Primary School by one year.  The application process for school places from September 2021 will re-open in September 2020, by which time the building of the new school should be nearing completion.  The Council is hopeful the site will become a local resource before September 2021 and that this key facility will soon become an integral part of the North End community.

The Council is writing to all those who applied for reception-aged places at Chestnut Park Primary from September 2020 asking them to review their school place requests.  No parent or child will be without a school place as a result of this process.

We continue to work closely with the Clevedon Learning Trust to deliver their new school.
