Consultation about school structures in the Coquet partnership
Effective: 11 May 2022 to 29 Jun 2022
Northumberland County Council has committed £25.5m towards the replacement and refurbishment of school buildings in the Coquet Partnership. However, before carrying out this work to schools, the Council needs to know that it is investing in a school structure that will deliver consistently good outcomes for all children and young people, and that it is sustainable for the current and future generations to come.More about Consultation about school structures in the Coquet partnership available here
Over the last few months, Council officers have been talking to Headteachers and school Chairs of Governors to gain their views on the current educational structure in Coquet. While there were some varying responses, the school leaders all agreed that it is now the right time for the views of everyone with an interest in education in Coquet to be captured. The schools have therefore asked the Council to carry out a wider consultation with parents, staff, governors, pupils and the wider public.
