Cllr Mark Watkin at Nascot Wood Junior School
which is set to increase its intake in 2017.
FROM next year Nascot Wood Junior School will welcome 90 rather than 60 pupils. This is likely to be for just one year and the intake expected to revert to 60 in 2017, in effect adding 30 children to total number of pupils at the school.
County councillor Mark Watkin said that an increased number of places is good news for families seeking school places, but warned there could be consequences for local residents. ‘Undoubtedly this will put more pressure on local parking so the review of the parking situation in the Nascot Wood Road area will be essential.
‘On the plus side it will mean more local Nascot children will have a chance to be educated at the outstanding Nascot Wood Junior School’, he added.
