We have moved to the next stage of a plan to meet the demand for new school places in the Shefford and Stotfold area, as part of the Schools for the Future programme.
This is a long-term programme to ensure we have the right schools, in the right places, delivering the best education possible.
The publication of the statutory notice follows a 12-week public consultation, which received over 1,400 responses between October 2019 and January 2020.
We have considered the feedback from this and held further discussions with the schools in the area. We have listened to the feedback and these discussions have led to a revised plan.
This plan will see schools in the area change to a two-tier system of education and allow expansion to accommodate new school places.
Over the next four weeks, you can have another say on the plans for the schools that we maintain in the area, via a questionnaire available online. Alternatively, you can download a copy, here. Academies do not need to publish statutory notices for public comment, but comments can be submitted to the individual academies concerned.
Responses should be submitted by June 30.
We will consider the feedback at our Executive Committee meeting on August 30 and make a final decision on the plans for maintained schools.
More information on the plans for change in the Shefford and Stotfold area can be found on the Schools for the Future website.
