As regards the preferred Marsh Lane site for a new (Basic Needs) primary school, a letter
has gone from the County Council's Chief Executive to SEMBCORP (owner of the land)
requesting Director level dialogue over the potential purchase by the County Council of part
of the site, leaving the remainder available for SEMBCORP's operational use.
Dorset Property and Children's Services are continuing to work together to find alternative
temporary solutions to the expected rise in pupil numbers. An additional mobile is being
provided at Christchurch Infants School this summer, and discussions are on-going with
Twynham Academy to explore using some of their potentially surplus mobiles in the
following year if it becomes necessary. One longer term solution under consideration is to
bring forward the Mudeford Basic Needs project.

Christchurch Primary School, Christchurch - 'Commit to Invest'
Due to rising school numbers a new primary school is required to be operational in
Christchurch, as part of the 'Basic Need' programme, by September 2015.
The only appropriate site has been identified, but because of delays in the resolution of
Christchurch Borough Council's Core Planning Strategy it is only now that negotiations for
its purchase have commenced.
