Report of the Director of Community & Children’s Services.
Members received a report of the Director of Community & Children’s Services regarding the City of London Academies Trust, Academies Development Programme Update.
Members heard that Galleywall Primary would suffer a delay of 4 weeks, but that the work has been well received.
The Board were also given an update on the City of London Primary Academy Islington, which had encountered further delays which have delayed the expected completion date. The City of London Corporation had commissioned independent advice on the ground conditions and there was due to be an update in the forthcoming weeks. A Chair’s meeting with Chief Officers was due to take place in June in order to consider the status of the project.
The Board noted that the occasion may arise that the necessary classroom space is not built in time, but there was no possibility for the school to remain in the current temporary accommodation.
