A CONSULTATION has been launched into a proposed multi-million pound expansion of an Oxford school.

Northfield School in Blackbird Leys was rated 'inadequate' in an Ofsted report in November.

This mean it would have to become an academy to receive additional support from a sponsor.

If no academy sponsor can be appointed for a school rated inadequate, then a proposal to close the school would be made.

Oxfordshire County Council is working closely with The Gallery Trust to guide improvements, which also runs The Iffley Academy in Oxford.

The authority now wants to expand and rebuild the school if a sponsor is found and is seeking the views of residents about the plans.
