Here you will find a summary of recent, current and future school consultations. These include proposals for new schools, proposals to physically expand existing schools, proposals to change the current admission number of a school or change the age range of a school.
Major changes to schools require a statutory process, involving consultation with colleagues, schools, pupils, parents and carers, councillors and the general public.
The 'documents' section will give more information about a particular consultation and allow you to view or download documents relevant to that proposal. There is also a link to an archive page which lists past consultations and their outcome.
