Joint Statement from the Executive Governors of Sandye Place Academy and our Director of Children’s Services

Tuesday, 10 July 2018

"Following the in-principle decision from the Department for Education (DfE) to close Sandye Place Academy, we have today (9 July 2018) written to the parents and carers of our pupils to update them on this situation. The final decision on the school's future will be taken by the DfE following a 'listening period' to gather views of stakeholders on the proposed closure. Views on the proposal should be sent to sandyeplace.listeningperiod@education.gov.uk by Friday 3 August.

We are united in our commitment to support everyone as much as we can. Should the DfE decide to proceed with closure, it would not happen before September 2019 and all pupils will have access to the best possible education at alternative local schools."
