Residents are being urged to take part in a public consultation into plans to expand a primary school in Kenton as part of a £150million project.
The proposal for Uxendon Manor Primary School in Vista Way, will see the school increase by two forms of entry in each year group totalling an extra 420 places.
The expansion of 60 places in each year group is intended to start at reception age this September 2015 and rise to Year 6 by September 2021.
Cllr Ruth Moher, Brent Council’s cabinet member for children and young people, said: “Like many London boroughs we are facing a growing demand for primary school places because of the borough’s growing population and growing numbers of school-age children.
“That’s why at some primary school such as Uxendon Manor we are proposing increasing the number of forms of entry.

“It’s very important that everyone in the community as well as parents and school staff has their say about the proposals and uses this opportunity to say what they think about our proposals for the school.”
The multi-million pound l expansion project in the borough will create an additional 5,775 primary school places.
