On the 20th May 2019, the Children and Young People’s Committee of NCC approved the proposals of Governing Bodies of both schools and of the County Council to:
• Change the age range of Christ Church Infant School for it to become a primary school.
• Relocate Christ Church Primary School and to rebuild it on a site in the Middlebeck development in Newark.
• Reason: A single site school will be delivered by Middlebeck housing developers to meet the need for school places generated by a housing growth plan of up to 3,150 dwellings by 2034. Members have agreed to extend the age range of the current Christ Church Infant School to become a primary school and enlarge its premises by relocation to the Middlebeck site within the Newark growth point area.
