A consultation has started to find a new site for a primary school which will cater for 350 pupils by 2020.

The Heights Primary School opened at a temporary site in Caversham last September, but five permanent options have now been put forward.

They include High Ridge, Mapledurham Playing Fields, Albert Road Recreation Ground, Shipnells Farm, known as Bugs Bottom and Dysons Farm.

The free school is currently operating from Gosbrook Road.

Reading Borough Council is conducting the survey and responses must be submitted by 1 May. The Education Funding Agency will then select a site based on the public's opinions.

The school opened last September with two reception classes and a year one class.

Two new classes of 25 children will join each year, reaching full capacity of 350 children by 2020.
