Have your say on Bedlington schools proposals

In response to a request from the governing bodies of Whitley Memorial CE First School and Bedlington West End First School, the council is carrying out consultation on a proposal to extend the age ranges of these two schools to become primary schools with effect from 1 September 2020.
 
Full details of the proposals and a range of additional information are available at:
 
Two public drop-in events have been arranged at the schools as follows:
  • Wednesday 8 May - 7pm to 8.30pm at Whitley Memorial CE First School, Bedlington; and
  • Thursday 9 May - 7pm to 8.30pm at West End First School, Bedlington.

At the events you will be able to speak to council officers and representatives of the schools about the proposals, and everyone is invited to attend.
 
We are asking for views on the proposal and also whether there are any alternative proposals or suggestions that could be considered.  Everyone with an interest in the proposals is invited to respond to the consultation.
 
You can complete the electronic questionnaire on the website here, or download the consultation document and complete the questionnaire at the back of the document.
