School Organisation planning

Under Section 14 of the Education Act 1996, the Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for resident children and is committed to working with schools, academies and Multi-Academy Trusts for the benefit of children and young people in Portsmouth. This duty requires the council to forecast future pupil populations so that it can ensure that sufficient places are provided. Through this forecasting work, the council considers the capacity in Portsmouth schools, and determines whether action needs to be taken to meet anticipated future demand for school places by Portsmouth resident children.

Portsmouth City Council’s approach is documented in the following suite of four key documents:

•          School Organisation Policy Statement

•          Primary School Place Strategy

•          Secondary School Place Strategy

•          SEND Provision Place Strategy
