A lower school in Sandy has started a consultation over plans to become a primary school starting next year.
Laburnum Lower School proposes to become a primary from September 2018, extending its age range from three to nine years to three to 11 years.
It says the change would bring it in line with other schools in the area and help children get better results by giving them more stability and continuity of learning – with pupils able to go through education with only one change of school.
If the plans go ahead, the school would need to expand physically to accommodate the higher pupil numbers.
A meeting is to be held at the Laburnum Road school for all those interested at 7.30pm on Tuesday, May 2, with the consultation to close on May 19.
