PARENTS are being invited to a meeting about the future of Mayfield School.

The school in North End, Portsmouth, has announced plans to become an all-through school for children aged four to 16 from September 2014.

The meeting will take place at 4pm on Friday in the school in Mayfield Road.

It will include a presentation from headteacher David Jeapes and a chance to ask questions.

The plans under consultation would mean a new two-form reception Year for 60 pupils which will grow to a 420-place primary school over a seven-year period.

An investment of £1.8m has been approved by the city council to transform existing space at the school and develop provision for primary age pupils.

Mr Jeapes said: ‘The involvement and engagement with our local community is absolutely vital.

‘This meeting is therefore an opportunity for our neighbours to find out more about the plans and give us their views.’

The consultation period will conclude on July 13.
