Statutory notices

Legislation states that a statutory notice must be published when a local authority proposes to make significant changes to a school. You can find more guidance on this on GOV.UK - School organisation: local-authority-maintained schools.

Any statutory notices published by the local authority relating to proposals to make significant changes to a school will be detailed on this page.

Any comments or queries made during any of the consultation meetings regarding proposals to make changes to schools will be summarised in a report to the Executive Board. A copy of the reports can be found in our meetings archive.
