School not to relocate

GORING Primary School has called off its plans to relocate.

The Church of England school in Wallingford Road, which suggested the idea in 2016, has instead agreed to expand on to the western half of the neighbouring Bourdillon Field.

The parish council, which owns the public green space, agreed this in principle last year.

The school and the Diocese of Oxford will now have to raise up to £8 million to refurbish or rebuild its existing Sixties premises.

Parish councillor Bryan Urbick said no new buildings would go on the field but a section would be fenced off for the school’s activities and the land would remain accessible to the public.
