WORK has begun to establish what community facilities could be provided as part of a new free school development in Caversham.
The Education Funding Agency announced in August that the Heights Primary School should be built on Mapledurham playing fields, off Woodcote Road.
The site was one of five considered for the school, which is currently at temporary premises off Gosbrook Road in Lower Caversham.
Now the Heights Primary Trust wants to address concerns raised during the publication consultation on the sites. A trust spokesman said: “As part of providing a school, we hope we enhance facilities for the residents.”
In a letter to Reading East MP Rob Wilson, the agency said: “We are aware that the playing fields are a valuable resource used by a variety of people for organised sport and other less formal activities.
“We remain keen to engage with local people while we develop our plans and hope the final plans will address any concerns to ensure that the development is welcomed.”
