We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked for your views on proposed traffic calming measures in the Eyres Monsell area.

4,300 consultation packs were delivered to households in the area and 625 responses were received (including 44 online). This represents a 15% response rate.

You Said

72% of respondents were supportive of the introduction of a 20mph zone, while 25% were against.

60% or respondents voted for the traffic calming on Glenhills Boulevard, with 32% against.

We Did

These results will be reported to the City Mayor along with a summary of comments made as part of the consultation.

We Asked

We asked for views on proposed changes to the admissions arrangements for entry into community and controlled schools from August 2019. The proposed changes are shown below:

  • To give priority to previously looked after children from outside England
  • To increase the sibling priority to include siblings in attendance in Year 11
  • To remove the domestic violence criteria and replace with a social and medical criterion
  • To add a new oversubscription criterion that gives priority for children of staff
  • To amend the admission arrangements relating to Fosse Primary School and Slater Primary School

The consultation was brought to the attention of:

  • Neighbouring local authorities
  • The admission forum
  • Parents of children in all Leicester city schools
  • The Nottingham Diocese / Diocese of Leicester
  • Parents with children in Early Year settings
  • General public through information on website / advert in Leicester Mercury.

You Said

A total of 31 responses were received with the majority of responses in favour of the proposed changes. The only mixed responses received were in respect of proposed change 4 (To add a new oversubscription criterion that gives priority for children of staff). Although the  majority of responses received were supportive of the proposed change, there were two negative responses and these are shown below.

  • As it will be low priority it would not provide space for many applicants in any case. Why should place of work be a priority over other working places (childcare issues are the main reasons for appeals).
  • This can look like an abuse of position although it does make sense if it sits in the position suggested. Details of how many places were awarded and under what criterion every year would help with transparency.

We Did

The Assistant City Mayor for Children and Young Peoples Services considered the responses and has made a decision to implement the new admission arrangements for entry from August 2019.  The full set of arrangements have been published online.

We Asked

We asked for views on the proposal to bring together Fosse Primary School and Slater Primary School, to form a larger five form entry Fosse Primary School and formally close Slater Primary School.

You Said

A total of 39 respondents submitted comments.  

When asked the question do you agree with the proposal to bring the two schools together to form a larger five form entry Fosse Primary School, 20 respondents said yes, and 19 said no.

Positive comments in relation to the proposal included:

  • New facility for the community
  • Good sports, PE and greenery
  • Opportunities for staff development
  • Current schools too small
  • Great idea to bring together
  • Aggregate resources

Some of the main comments given for not supporting the proposals included:

  • Too big
  • Wrong lead school
  • Traffic and other health and safety concerns
  • Job security
  • Early years to key stage 1 transition concerns with the split site
  • Ecology concerns

Half of the 'No' responses from members of the public related to traffic and ecology concerns, rather than the educational statutory proposal, which this consultation relates to. The new building has planning approval, traffic and ecology issues are being addressed as part of the construction project.

We Did

The Deputy City Mayor for Children and Young Peoples Services considered the responses and has made a decision to continue to the next stage of the proposals - publication of a statutory notice followed by a four week period for statutory representations.

The statutory notice will be published on Monday 9 April (closes Sunday 6 May). At the end of which a further decision will need to be taken by the Executive as to whether to implement the proposals or not.

If implemented they will be effective from 31 August and 1 September 2019.
