School organisation and planning of school places

Information about the number of schools in East Riding of Yorkshire, pupil numbers and the principles used for the planning of school places.

How does the council plan its school places?

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has the responsibility for ensuring that there are sufficient school places for children resident in East Riding of Yorkshire. The council recognises that although it has the responsibility for the strategic planning of school places, changes can be made to schools, including the opening or closing of schools, by bodies other than the council.

In order to meet its statutory duty, and to ensure that the council and any other bodies considering making changes to the provision of school places have information on which to base their decisions, the council has prepared a School Place Planning Framework. 

The framework includes:

  • the background to education provision in East Riding of Yorkshire and the current position
  • the historic numbers on the roll together with a forecast of pupil numbers for each school in the area. These are updated annually and information on any changes that are being made also included
  • principles that the council has adopted which will be used when planning any changes the supply of school places.

The School Place Planning Framework can be accessed below:

The council will use the framework when formulating and agreeing on the Capital Program for any changes to existing schools or developing new ones.
