Dear Parent/Carer/local stakeholder
We are writing to you to consult on our proposal to build a new sports hall and 4 classrooms to enhance the facilities and capacity at Ivanhoe College as we prepare to become an 11-16 school.
We are consulting with you about:
As a Governing Board we have been planning carefully for age range change and striving for excellence in our provision. Our priority is always to ensure the best possible educational provision for our students and to continue to develop our site and facilities in order to support this. We believe these new facilities will be a great addition to Ivanhoe and will create even more opportunities for our students and as well as for evening and weekend community use, working together with NWL District Council.
As you will be aware, in just over a year’s time Ivanhoe College will be starting the process of age range change with our first Year 10 students beginning their GCSE courses with us from August 2022. Our provision for PE and sport will be greatly enhanced by the addition of the new sports hall and additional teaching spaces will ensure we can meet the capacity needs during age range change and also the growth in pupil numbers across our area.
We have already gained planning permission from the District Council and Local Authority for the new sports hall and classrooms. Details of the proposed building can be seen on the Ivanhoe College website here https://www.ivanhoe.co.uk/more/sports-hall-plans and also on the NWL District Council planning portal here: https://plans.nwleics.gov.uk/public-access/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=QAZWF1LRHHJ00
A further step we now need to take is to gain approval from the Department for Education (DfE) and as part of this process we want to consult with all our stakeholders.
Further information about the proposed changes:
The formal 5-week consultation process begins on Thursday 29th April 2021 and will run until Thursday 3rd June 2021.
Responses can be submitted in writing to 'Consultation' c/o Ivanhoe College, North Street, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire. LE65 1HX, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org To help us in collating responses, please indicate whether you are a parent and the year group(s) of your child(ren).
All views will be considered by the Governing Board before submitting the application to the DfE.
We look forward to hearing your views.
