“We educate more than 14,000 children in the Diocese so have a good track record and can bring a lot to the table.
“This is a great proposal and working in partnership with the local community is crucial. We want this to be a neighbourhood school.”
Applications for the new Wynyard Church of England Primary School will be welcome from local children of any faith or none.
“We need to show the Department for Education (DfE) that there is sufficient demand for our proposed school."

Once the consultation is completed, the application will be sent to the Department for Education in May and, if successful, the school will open in September 2015.
