Farnley Park School Warley

Volume 477: debated on Monday 16 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families when his Department plans to decide on the application for Building Schools for the Future funding for the rebuilding of Farnley Park School in Warley, West Leeds; and if he will make a statement. (211179)

Farnley Park School is in phase two of Leeds’ Wave 1 Building Schools for the Future project. Overall funding for phases two and three was approved by the Department in February 2008. Leeds is currently investigating whether it is possible to provide a fully rebuilt school—rather than the remodelled option put forward previously—without any additional funding from the Department. Once a decision has been made we expect the council to come back to us for final approval of its plans for Farnley Park in October 2008.
